GCRG Heads for the Skies with NASA-Funded Research

GCRG will work with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Jet Propulsion Lab to measure the greenhouse gas effect on the Arctic. The research team will collect data that will provide unprecedented experimental insights into Arctic carbon cycling, especially the release of the important greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. The study is one of five new airborne science missions announced by NASA last week. Other projects will examine soil-based ecosystems, hurricanes and air quality. The competitively selected proposals are the first investigations in the new Ventureclass series of low-to-moderate cost projects established by the agency last year. The Earth Venture missions are part of NASA’s Earth System Science Pathfinder program. More >>
