Data Set Overview
|Data set||CARVE: Fire-Related Aerosol and Soil Elemental and Isotopic Composition, Alaska, 2013|
|Project||Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment|
This data set provides measurements of the isotopic composition of black carbon and organic carbon aerosols collected at two locations in interior Alaska during the summer of 2013, as part of NASA's Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE). The delta14C end member of fire aerosol was derived and linked to soil elemental and isotopic composition in Alaskan boreal forests. Soil and aerosol measurements were used to estimate average depth of burn in Alaska during the summer of 2013.

Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment: 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.
