Data Set Overview
|Data set||CARVE: L2 Atmospheric CO2, CO, and CH4 Concentrations, CARVE Tower, Alaska, 2011-2015|
|Project||Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment|
|Time Period||2011-10-23 to 2014-12-31|
This data set provides atmospheric methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), and carbon monoxide (CO) dry air mole fractions and water vapor mole fractions (H2O) from continuous in situ measurements at the CARVE flux tower in Fox, Alaska between October 2011 and May 2015 for the Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE). Air was drawn from three different heights above the base of the tower (31.7 m, 17.1 m, and 4.9 m) and analyzed using a Picarro cavity ring-down spectrometer (CRDS). Measurements of ambient and sonic temperature, vertical and horizontal velocity, and atmospheric pressure are also included in the data set.

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.
