Description

This dataset contains tables containing Airborne flight metadata from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) surveys from 2012 to 2022 in Alaska and Canada. NASA's Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) conducted airborne SAR surveys of over 120,000 km2 in Alaska and northwestern Canada during 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2022. Legacy lines acquired between 2012 and 2015 by other projects are included for completeness and to enable longer times series creation. The data files and companion file contain L-band and P-band airborne SAR metadata acquired during the ABoVE airborne campaigns. Included are detailed descriptions of ~80 SAR flight lines and how each fits into the ABoVE experimental design. Extensive maps, tables, and hyperlinks give direct access to every flight plan as well as individual flight lines. This entry is a guide to enable interested readers to fully explore the ABoVE L- and P-band SAR data.
