Description

ABoVE is a NASA Terrestrial Ecology Program field campaign that will be conducted in Alaska and Western Canada (West of the Hudson Bay). The planning started in 2009 with a scoping study and in 2013 the science definition team wrote a concise experiment plan that was completed June 23, 2014. Partnerships with other programs and existing research sites are being formed to share resources and data.
