  (updated 03-Feb-2017)
Project Title:Characterizing methane emission response to the past 60 years of permafrost thaw in thermokarst lakes
Project Lead: Franz Meyer, University of Alaska, Fairbanks
Project Funding: 2015 - 2018
NASA (agency representative: Eric Kasischke)
Project Type:NASA -- joined ABoVE in 2015
Solicitation:NASA: Terrestrial Ecology (2014)
Abstract: The proposed research combines geospatial data products derived from airborne and spaceborne remote sensing (RS) data with targeted field observations and modeling in order to quantify ecosystem responses to Arctic and boreal environmental change. Specifically, we will quantify methane (CH4) ebullition (bubbling) emissions associated with 60 years ... [more]
