Open Water Pixel Masks from ABoVE Flight Paths

AirSWOT Imagery

Example of color-infrared imagery shown alongside the corresponding semi-automated open water classification at Old Crow Flats, Alaska.

AirSWOT imagery from the 2017 Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) was used to create water masks across parts of Canada and Alaska.

Model-Derived CO2 Biogenic Fluxes

Gross Primary Productivity

Mean gross primary productivity (GPP) for the conterminous US and North America in grams of carbon per unit area per month.

Carbon fluxes and uncertainties are available from the Atmospheric Carbon and Transport - America (ACT-America) project.

Boreal Forest Burned and Unburned Site Comparisons

Image of a burned field site.

A typical burned plot in the Saskatchewan, Canada, boreal forest study area.

Fire history and field measurements were used to estimate above- and belowground carbon values.

Boreal & Tundra Soil Respiration Data

Images of field instruments.

(A) A Soil Respiration Station (SRS), (B) a SRS data logger, and (C) a Forced Diffusion Chamber (FD chamber) deployed at a boreal forest site in central Alaska.

Data collected by soil respiration stations installed at boreal and tundra sites are available from the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE).

Forest Biomass Maps Derived from Disturbance History

Map of biomass.

Biomass (Mg ha-1) for the northern Minnesota site.

Six Landsat focus sites were used to produce disturbance history and forest biomass maps.
