<!-- Swiki Description -->
Welcome to the collaborative website for the Airborne Carbon in the Mountains Experiment (ACME). ACME04 was the first aircraft field campaign of a program supported by the NSF Biocomplexity Program and NASA Interdisciplinary Science. Field operations took place in the Colorado Front Range of the Rocky Mountains from May to August, 2004. The goal of the project is to understand carbon dynamics in montane forest regions by developing new methods for estimating carbon exchange at local to regional scales.
