Biraud Studies Warming Trend in Alaska

Instead, the ARM Airborne Carbon Measurements V (ARM-ACME V) team—led by EES-ESD climate scientist Sebastien Biraud—will run an aerial campaign from June 1 to September 15, 2015, measuring trace gas concentrations, aerosols, and cloud properties to find out why current climate models underestimate how rapidly the Arctic is getting warmer.
