Airborne Carbon in the Mountains Experiment 2007

03/01/2007 - 09/30/2007

EOL collaborated with investigators at CU, CSU, and in CGD, MMM, and TIIMES to conduct the ACME ’07 campaign using the University of Wyoming King Air. This was the second Airborne Carbon in the Mountains Campaign, focusing in Colorado and Wyoming, with flights taking place from early spring through fall 2007. EOL also collaborated with TIIMES and investigators from Harvard, NOAA, and Scripps Institution of Oceanography to plan and conduct the HIPPO campaign on the NCAR G-V. This campaign investigating the global carbon cycle will conduct profiling flights over North America in 2008, and during 5 global loops from 2009-2011. EOL and TIIMES staff continued to operate the Regional Atmospheric Continuous CO2 Network in the Rocky Mountains (Rocky RACCOON) network of CO2 analyzers and collaborate with University of Utah and University of Wisconsin to investigate regional carbon cycling the Rocky Mountains.
