ACT-America Tracks Atmospheric Carbon

The ACT-America mission

The Atmospheric Carbon and Transport – America (ACT-America) project is conducting airborne campaigns across three regions in the eastern United States to study the transport of atmospheric carbon.

NASA's ACT-America mission measured atmospheric CO2, CO, CH4, and O3 concentrations across the Eastern USA in 2016.

Mapping wildfires across Alaska and Canada

Date of Burning (DoB) was estimated for areas within each fire scar across Alaska and Canada.

Date of Burning (DoB) was estimated for areas within each fire scar across Alaska and Canada. In this figure, red areas are fire scar locations across central Canada in 2015.

New data from NASA's ABoVE project provide maps of the date of burning within fire scars across Alaska and Canada from 2001-2015.
