New Datasets From The North American Carbon Program (NACP)

The ORNL DAAC is pleased to announce the release of four data sets associated with The North American Carbon Program (NACP):

NACP Integrated Wildland and Cropland 30-m Fuel Characteristics Map, U.S.A., 2010,

NACP Regional: National Greenhouse Gas Inventories and Aggregated Gridded Model Data,

NACP Site: Terrestrial Biosphere Model and Aggregated Flux Data in Standard Format,

NACP Site: Tower Meteorology, Flux Observations with Uncertainty, and Ancillary Data,

The North American Carbon Program (NACP), is a multi-disciplinary research program designed to obtain scientific understanding of North America's carbon sources and sinks and of the changes in carbon stocks needed to meet societal concerns, and to provide tools for decision makers. NACP began in 2002 and continues to date. The NACP data collection contains continental carbon budgets, dynamics, processes, and management of the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide, methane, and carbon monoxide in North America and in adjacent ocean regions.

The ORNL DAAC is a NASA-funded data center archiving and distributing terrestrial ecology and biogeochemical dynamics data.
