Workshop on NASA Data for Ecology

Alison Boyer at the 2019 Ecological Society of America meeting.

ORNL DAAC Chief Scientist Alison Boyer describes one of her favorite publications that demonstrates how data archived at the ORNL DAAC can be used in ecological research.

Materials are available from a recent workshop presented at the 2019 Ecological Society of America meeting.

Sub-Meter Scale Vegetation Maps for Toolik Lake, Alaska

Vegetation communities.

Vegetation communities for the Toolik footprint shown at 1:25,000 scale.

Plant communities near Toolik Lake research station in Alaska were classified at 20 cm resolution based on airborne imagery and lidar surveys.

Ecosystem Functional Types Across Mexico

Ecosystem functional type.

Spatial distribution of 64 ecosystem functional type (EFT) categories across Mexico. For each pixel, the dominant EFT is reported.

New data from the Carbon Monitoring System classifies Mexico's ecosystems based on their ecosystem functioning.

Spectral Reflectance of Tundra Plants

Common Garden Ecotype site.

A plot at a common garden ecotype site near Eagle Creek, Alaska. Common garden sites were established with different populations of the tussock-forming sedge taken from different latitudes in Alaska.

Researchers with the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) measured plot-level and species-specific full-spectrum reflectance data for tundra plants.

Black Carbon Aerosols from ATom

The SP2 instrument.

The NOAA Single Particle Soot Photometer (SP2) is a laser-induced incandescence instrument primarily used for measuring the black carbon mass content of individual particles.

Black carbon concentrations were measured over remote regions of the Earth during NASA's Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) Mission.
