Abstract

U.S. and Canadian Scientists Cooperate plays a critical role in atmospheric chemistry and in Global Atmospheric Study possible global warming. Methane traps heat near Scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space the surface of the earth that otherwise would radiate Administration (NASA) and U.S. universities joined into space, warming the atmosphere. One scenario Canadian researchers from 5 July to 20 August in an considers that, over several decades, higher tem- expedition entitled the Atmospheric Boundary Layer peratures could prompt other phenomena, such as Experiment-3B (ABLE) to study pollution at high north- the melting of light-reflecting sea-ice, which could ern latitudes and emissions of methane from tundra, lead to even more warming. forests, and marshes. The CIRAC Northern Wetlands Project will study The study let scientists look at changes in chemical the sensitivity of methane emissions to changes in composition that occur when Arctic air masses, which surface temperatures to predict how these emissions influence air quality and climate over North America, may change in a warmer climate. The main NASA Eurasia, and the northern oceans, mix with polluted sampling platform is the agency's Lockheed Electra continental air masses. aircraft, stationed at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Observations of Arctic
