The 35m tower located in Pleistocene Park (68.51351°N, 161.53115°E elev. 16m, about 20 km south of Cherskiy), is currently measuring fluxes of carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor and energy as well as other meteorological variables. In partnership with NOAA, methane fluxes are being measured with fast response analyzer. These data will contribute to the Global Monitoring Division of NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory as part of a global greenhouse monitoring network, providing long-term obvservations for improved understanding Arctic methane emessions and the globabl carbon cycle.
