    The Atmospheric Carbon and Transport America (ACT-America), will conduct five airborne campaigns across three regions in the eastern United States to study the transport of atmospheric carbon.

    ACT-America will deploy two aircraft, a C-130 and UC-12, instrumented with remote and in situ sensors, to observe how mid-latitude weather systems interact with CO2 and CH4 sources and sinks to create atmospheric CO2/CH4 distributions.

    The overarching goal will be achieved via three mission goals:

    1) Quantify and reduce atmospheric transport uncertainty,
    2) Improve regional, seasonal estimates of CO2 and CH4 fluxes, and
    3) Evaluate the sensitivity of Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) column CO2 measurements to regional variability in tropospheric CO2. >> more
