Description

This data set provides earth referenced radiance counts measured by the Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) camera aboard the CARVE aircraft between April 2013 and November 2015 for the Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE). The FLIR camera records images of the surface temperature while measuring concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide, methane, and ozone. Thermal images from the FLIR camera will be used to characterize land surfaces underlain by permafrost during specific phases in the freeze-thaw cycle. 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.
