NASA wants to hear from Northerners

Kluane_PeterGriffith 2NASA.jpegNASA says the Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on earth. It's offering unique tools to help northerners find out what that will mean. The agency has already approved experiments to track surface water, forest fires carbon dioxide exchange and vegetation as part of the Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment. It also wants to work with governments, communities, non-governmental organizations and academics in the north to learn what other experiments NASA might be able to help with. To find out more, we reached Peter Griffith. He's the chief support scientist with the Sigma Space Corporation at the NASA Goddard Flight Center in Maryland.
