Merged Data from the Atmospheric Tomography Mission

ATom flights

Generalized overview of ATom flights. During each of the four campaigns, ATom flights originated from California, flew south over the Pacific Ocean, then north to the western Arctic, southwest to New Zealand, east to Chile and the Atlantic Ocean, north to Greenland, and returned to California across North America. During flights, the aircraft continuously profiled the atmosphere from 0.2 to 12 km altitude.

The Atmospheric Tomography Mission (ATom) has released multi-instrument merged data from all four flight campaigns spanning from 2016 - 2018.

Carbon Sequestration Potential for Maryland

Maximum forest aboveground biomass

Carbon sequestration potential within the state of Maryland, defined as 95% of maximum forest aboveground biomass (Mg/ha), simulated after 500 years of succession.

A new dataset maps the aboveground biomass of Maryland's forests and estimates their potential for future carbon sequestration.

Example of AirSWOT radar products in ABoVE Projection at 3.6 m resolution, for a flight over the ABoVE C grid Ch065v034. Left: Shape for backscatter image. Middle: Backscatter magnitude shows bright reflection in the near range and no returns, yielding regions of no data, in the far range. Right: Derived elevation product.

The ABoVE project has released data from AirSWOT flights in Summer 2017 collected over Alaska and Canada.
