Data Set Overview
|Data set||AirMOSS: L4 Daily Modeled Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE), AirMOSS sites, 2012-2014|
|Project||Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface|
|Time Period||2012-01-01 to 2014-10-30|
This data set provides Level 4 daily estimates of Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE) of CO2 at a spatial resolution of 30 arc-seconds (~1 km) for seven of the sites covered by the Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS) flights, each site spanning ~2500 km2. The daily NEE estimates are generally available from October 2012 through October 2014, although the exact time ranges vary by site. The AirMOSS L4 daily NEE were produced by the Ecosystem Demography Biosphere Model (ED2) augmented by the AirMOSS-derived L2/3 root zone soil moisture data as an additional input. The AirMOSS soil moisture data were used to estimate the sensitivity of carbon fluxes to soil moisture and to diagnose and improve estimation and prediction of NEE by constraining the model's predictions of soil moisture and its impact on above- and below-ground fluxes.

Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface: The goal of NASA’s Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS) investigation is to provide high-resolution observations of root-zone soil moisture over regions representative of the major North American climatic habitats (biomes), quantify the impact of variations in soil moisture on the estimation of regional carbon fluxes, and extrapolate the reduced-uncertainty estimates of regional carbon fluxes to the continental scale of North America. The AirMOSS campaign used an airborne ultra-high frequency synthetic aperture radar flown on a Gulfstream-III aircraft to derive estimates of soil moisture down to approximately 1.2 meters. Extensive ground, tower, and aircraft in-situ measurements were collected to validate root-zone soil measurements and carbon flux model estimates. The AirMOSS soil measurements can be used to better understand carbon fluxes and their associated uncertainties on a continental scale. Additionally, AirMOSS data provide a direct means for validating root-zone soil measurement algorithms from the Soil Moisture Active & Passive (SMAP) mission and assessing the impact of fine-scale heterogeneities in its coarse-resolution products.
