Project Title:Development of a Data-Assimilation Framework for Integrating 25 Years of Surface and Airborne observations to assess patterns of net CO2 Exchange from Arctic Ecosystems
Project Lead: J. (Bill) Munger, Harvard University
Project Funding: 2013 - 2016

Project Type:NASA -- joined ABoVE in 2013
Solicitation:NASA: Pre-ABoVE: Terrestrial Ecology (2012)
Successor Projects: Munger-04  
Abstract: Arctic ecosystems store a large mass of organic carbon that could be released to the atmosphere as CO2 or CH4 if warming temperatures degrade the permafrost and drain the wetlands that have kept this carbon stable. The Arctic is too large and too variable for a network of individual site observations to define indication of regional environmental c ... [more]
