Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment Data Sets

CARVE: The Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE) is a NASA Earth System Science Pathfinder Mission. From 2011 to 2015, CARVE collected airborne measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide, methane, and carbon monoxide and relevant land surface parameters in the Alaskan Arctic. Continuous ground-based measurements provide temporal and regional context as well as calibration for CARVE airborne measurements. CARVE provides an integrated set of greenhouse gas data that provides experimental insights into Arctic carbon cycling.

All CARVE data sets are available FREE of charge. New CARVE data sets are marked new. You will need to sign in to order CARVE data sets. Currently 20 CARVE data sets are available online.
