Abstract: The data in the aircraft portion of the Land Atmosphere Ice Interaction (LAII) Alaska Landscape Flux Survey (ALFS) were collected in June 1994, June 1995, August 1995, and June 1996. The object of the effort was to measure remote sensing variables, the vertical flux density of sensible and latent heat, CO2, and momentum for extrapolating surface-based measurements to regional scales.
