The NASA Carbon Airborne Flux Experiment (CARAFE) was a project designed to study carbon flux and other anthropogenic emissions along the mid-Atlantic coast. CARAFE began in the summer of 2016 and concluded the following summer after completing two successful deployments. NASA’s C-23 Sherpa was equipped with a host of sensors used for measuring greenhouse gases, water vapor, and taking meteorological measurements. CARAFE was funded by NASA’s Carbon Monitoring System Program, Goddard Space Flight Center’s Internal Research and Development Program, and NASA HQ’s Earth Science Division.
