Description

This data set provides atmospheric carbon dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide, molecular hydrogen, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride, and other trace gas mole fractions (i.e. "concentrations") from a flask sampling system at the CARVE flux tower in Fox, Alaska for the Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE). The data were derived from laboratory measurements of whole air samples collected by a Programmable Flask Package (PFP) from the top of the tower at 32 m above ground level during late evening multiple times per month since January 2012. Whole air samples collected in the PFPs were analyzed on automated systems at the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) Global Monitoring Division in Boulder, CO, which also analyzes samples from the NOAA/ESRL Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network. The measurements included in this data set are crucial for understanding changes in Arctic carbon cycling and the potential threats posed by thawing of Arctic permafrost.
