Short Name:

CARVE: Monthly Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations (2009-2013) and Modeled Fluxes, Alaska

This data set reports monthly averages of atmospheric CO2 concentration from satellite and airborne observations between 2009 and 2013 and simulated present and future monthly concentrations and land-atmosphere CO2 flux for periods between 1990 and 2200. Atmospheric CO2 concentration measurements were obtained from Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE) and NOAA Arctic Coast Guard (ACG) flights, the Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT), and NOAA/ESRL vertical profile measurements at Poker Flat, Alaska (PFA). Present and future monthly CO2 concentrations and fluxes were simulated using the GEOS-Chem global tracer model and the Community Land Model, Version 4.5, for multiple regional flux and permafrost thaw scenarios.
