Greenhouse gas flux measurements at the zero curtain, North Slope, Alaska, 2012-2017

Climate change is affecting the Arctic at an unprecedented rate, potentially releasing substantial amounts of greenhouse gases (CO2 and CH4) from tundra ecosystems. Measuring greenhouse gas emissions in the Arctic, particularly outside of the summer period, is very challenging due to extreme weather conditions. The University of Sheffield (USFD), the University of Exeter and the San Diego State University (SDSU) are therefore collaborating on data collection, processing, quality control and harmonisation of greenhouse gas measurements at 5 eddy covariance towers in North Slope, Alaska, as well as meteorological observations in the surrounding area. As part of INTAROS, USFD has been in charge of greenhouse gas measurements and their publication in an open data repository.
