Project Type:NASA -- joined ABoVE in 2015
Solicitation:NASA: Interdisciplinary Research in Earth Science (2012)
Abstract: The climate of the Arctic is rapidly changing, with possible important releases of carbon to the atmosphere, including from permafrosts as they continue to thaw. Satellite instruments offer hope for estimating and monitoring changes in carbon emissions in the Arctic, but i) this region presents significant challenges (e.g., persistent cloud cover, ... [more]
