Release date2017-01-30
ProjectArctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment
Time Period1976-08-04 to 2014-09-01


This data set provides four land cover and ecosystem classification maps for northern Alaska. The maps were produced for several projects and from different data sources including Landsat imagery and existing maps and models, and cover a range of ecosystem and vegetation classes. The data used to derive the maps covered the period 1976-08-04 to 2014-09-01.

Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment: The Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) is a NASA Terrestrial Ecology Program field campaign that will take place in Alaska and western Canada between 2016 and 2021. Climate change in the Arctic and Boreal region is unfolding faster than anywhere else on Earth. ABoVE seeks a better understanding of the vulnerability and resilience of ecosystems and society to this changing environment.
