Scientists with NASA's Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment - ABoVE - are studying how the Arctic region responds to climate change. Looking at everything from thawing permafrost underground to wildfires, the researchers are working to create a comprehensive picture of the warming Arctic.
This summer, the team brought a fleet of planes to fly over Alaska and Canada and gather data to complement measurements taken from the ground. The ABoVE campaign is designed to last for ten years.
