Data sets

CARVE: CH4, CO2, and CO Hourly Mole Fractions from CARVE Tower, Fox, Alaska, 2012-2014 Karion, A., Sweeney, C., Miller, J. B., Andrews, A. E., Commane, R., Dinardo, S. J., Henderson, J., Lindaas, J.

Short summary
Northern high-latitude carbon sources and sinks, including those resulting from degrading permafrost, are thought to be sensitive to the rapidly warming climate. Here we use carbon dioxide and methane measurements from a tower near Fairbanks AK to investigate regional Alaskan fluxes of CO2 and CH4 for 2012–2014.
