Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE)


Earth, Western HemisphereThe Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE) was a NASA Earth Venture Suborbital-1 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 provide insights into Arctic carbon cycling.
