ABoVE is a 10 year, NASA sponsored research project focused on observing the changes that are happening in the northern latitudes of Earth. Scientific Aviation is contracted through the University of Colorado – Boulder and NOAA to conduct in situ air sampling across the state of Alaska and western Canada. Scientific Aviation teams fly over 4,000 nm across the entire arctic region collecting samples of methane and carbon dioxide emissions from melting Permafrost and Boreal Forests. ABoVE Media
