Gas and particle data from Fairbanks during the winter of 2019/2020This repository contains data from the relocatable air monitoring system (RAMS) trailer, which measured air pollution around sites in the Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB), Alaska. Measured pollutants were: SO2, CO, CO2, and particulate matter (PM). We additionally measured meteorological parameters such as temperatures, winds, and vertical differences in temperatures across an 11-meter tall tower.
Recent and Possible Future Changes in PermafrostRecent observations indicate a warming of permafrost in many northern regions with the resulting degradation of ice-rich and carbon rich permafrost. Permafrost temperature has increased by 0.5°C to 3°C in the northern Hemisphere during the last 30-40 years (Romanovsky et al., 2010).
