CARVE (Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment)

Thursday, June 5, 2014

On May 26, CARVE flew two separate flights. The first flight was to Fort Yukon, and the second was to Minto flats and Nikolia.

We observed low C02 and enhanced CH4.

Below is a new product: CH4 Altitude vs. Lat and Long . Breaks in data are due to instrument calibration periods.


On May 29, we flew over Minto and to Nikolia, Data shows slight CO2 draw down, and elevated CH4 near Nikolia.


On the same flight, CARVE achieved its PLRA Major Milestone Goal of 500 Science flight hours in Alaska.
