CO2 Concentrations in the Boston Area

Map of measurement stations in the Boston network and 2014 average afternoon CO2 emissions.

Measurement stations in the Boston area including two urban sites: Boston University (BU) and Copley Square (COP), and three boundary sites: Harvard Forest (HF), Canaan (CA), and Martha's Vineyard (MVY). Blue shading represents 2014 average afternoon CO2 emissions. See the dataset user guide for more details.

A new dataset from the North American Carbon Program provides atmospheric measurements of CO2 and model estimates of urban emissions at sites near Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Field site locations that correspond to the flight tracks of the 2017 ABoVE Airborne Campaign have been published.

Two New Datasets from ATom

Image of ATom-1 deployment flight tracks and black carbon mass-mixing ratio.

Flight tracks of the NASA DC-8 during the ATom-1 deployment. The scale to the right represents black carbon mass-mixing ratio in units of ng rBC/kg of air.

New data collected during ATom flights provide measurements of aerosols and black carbon concentrations in the atmosphere.

High-Resolution Permafrost Maps for Western Alaska

Map of permafrost presence and locations of elevation extremes.

High-resolution elevation maps, based on LiDAR, were used to model the distribution of permafrost across the Y-K Delta of Alaska. The map insets show detail for areas of relative high elevation (left) and low elevation (right).

Scientists with NASA's ABoVE field campaign modeled the distribution of permafrost across the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta of Alaska.

Soil Carbon Content Across the Great Plains
