Alaskan Fire Fuel Components

Four maps showing fractional cover distribution.

Examples of fractional cover distribution in a tundra region near Lake Narvakrak in the Noatak River National Preserve: (a) very high-resolution imagery from Google Earth; (b) fractional cover of woody component; (b) fractional cover of herbaceous component; (d) fractional cover of nonvascular component.

Maps of three major wildland fire fuel types are available from the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment.

MODIS-Derived Snowmelt Timing Maps, Version 2

Map of snowmelt date.

Mean snowmelt Day of Year (DOY) for the years 2001-2018 for North America. The DOY values for snowmelt timing were identified by observing the transition from snow-cover to no-snow for individual MODIS pixels throughout the annual melt period.

The second version of snowmelt timing maps for North America is available for the period 2001 through 2018.

Arctic Whole Air Samples

Graph showing vertical profile maneuvers.

Arctic-CAP flights consisted of vertical profile maneuvers from near the surface to 6 km altitude around the ABoVE domain each month. Profiles were flown at each of the 25 locations listed across the top of this figure.

Atmospheric gas concentrations collected during the Arctic Carbon Aircraft Profile (Arctic-CAP) campaigns are now available.
