The Campaign

The Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment is a NASA-led project, which studies the Arctic and boreal ecosystems to understand their vulnerability and resilience to environmental change. ABoVE began in the spring of 2017 and has completed 3 deployments since then. A host of aircraft, including NASA’s GIII and Dynamic Aviation’s B-200, along with instrumentation placed strategically on towers throughout the study domain helped scientists use remote sensing to track physical changes across the terrain, as well as climatological changes over time. This was done in hopes of providing a foundation for improving the analysis, and modeling capabilities needed to understand and predict ecosystem responses and societal implications. ABoVE is founded by NASA’s Terrestrial Ecology Program.
