Short Name:

CARVE: Fire-Related Aerosol and Soil Elemental and Isotopic Composition, Alaska, 2013

This data set provides measurements of the isotopic composition of black carbon and organic carbon aerosols collected at two locations in interior Alaska during the summer of 2013, as part of NASA's Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE). The delta14C end member of fire aerosol was derived and linked to soil elemental and isotopic composition in Alaskan boreal forests. Soil and aerosol measurements were used to estimate average depth of burn in Alaska during the summer of 2013.
