Burn Terrestrial Data
Title Abstract
Summer soil temperature and moisture at the Anaktuvuk River Unburned site from 2010 to 2013
Soil moisture and temperature were recorded at the Anaktuvuk River burn area during the summers from 2010 to 2013. Six sensors were deployed and measured temperature on half-hourly intervals over the summer and into the fall depending on battery function. Sensors were place in a hexagonal shape around a central datalogger. Note that over time sensor depths changed due to frost heave and other environmental factors. All data contained should be treated as suspect where sensors may have been... more
Summer soil temperature and moisture at the Anaktuvuk River Severely burned site from 2010 to 2013
Soil moisture and temperature were recorded at the Anaktuvuk River burn area during the summers from 2010 to 2013. Six sensors were deployed and measured temperature on half-hourly intervals over the summer and into the fall depending on battery function. Sensors were place in a hexagonal shape around a central data logger. Note that over time sensor depths changed due to frost heave and other environmental factors. All data contained should be treated as suspect where sensors may have been... more

Ecotypes Disturbance experiments
Title Abstract
Soil respiration from a mycorrhizal and root exclusion experiment at Toolik Lake Field Station and Anaktuvuk River Burn, Alaska in 2016
Organic soil from either the Anaktuvik severe burn or Toolik Lake were collected to test of effect of removal of mycorrhizae on decompositon of tundra at Toolik Lake and the Anaktuvuk Burn IN 2016.
A licor 6400 with 6400-09 soil respiration chamber was used to measure soil respiration (efflux) from the cores on a weekly basis.
Ion exchange membrane measure of nutrient availability of the 2015 experimental burn at Toolik Lake Field Station, Alaska 2016
An experimental burn conducted in the summer of 2015 to provide sites for an experiment whether seeds of Eriophorum vaginatum from different ecotypes could establish in recently burned areas.  It consisted of ten 2 meter X 2 meter plots along with a similar number of control plots. There was little seedling establishment but other data were collected on the plots.  Ion exchange membranes were used to measure nutrient availability over two time periods:  Early season (June) and mid season (... more

Thermokarst Soil
Title Abstract
Surface soil characteristics for six thermokarst chronosequences near Toolik Field Station and Noatak National Preserve, Alaska
Surface organic and mineral soil layers were sampled in retrogressive thaw slump disturbance scars and nearby undisturbed tundra to estmate the influence of this thermo-erosional--thermokarst--disturbance type on soil carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) pools. Within six independent sites, we identified multiple thaw slump scars and determined time after disturbance for each scar by (1) aging the population of tall deciduous shrubs rooted in the mineral soil and (2) by dating the basal layer of... more

Title Abstract
Soil aggregate size distribution and particulate organic matter content from Arctic LTER moist acidic tundra nutrient addition plots, Toolik Field Station, Alaska, sampled July 2011.
Soil aggregate size distribution, aggregate carbon and nitrogen, and light fraction carbon were determined for mineral soils in moist acidic tundra. Soil was sampled in control, and N+P plots of the Arctic LTER Moist Acidic Tundra plots established in 1989 and 2006.
Nitrogen mineralization was determined on Arctic LTERToolik and Sag River tussock tundra using the buried bag method, Toolik Field Station, Alaska, Arctic LTER 1989-2013.
Nitrogen mineralization was determined on LTER and Sag River tussock tundra using the buried bag method. Yearly bags have been deployed every August since 1990.
Plant available NH4, NO3, and PO4 was determined at sites near ARC LTER Toolik acidic tundra and at a toposequence along the floodplain of the Sagavanirktuk River using 2 N KCL and weak HCL extracts, Arctic LTER 1987 to 2002
Plant available NH4, NO3, and PO4 was determined at sites near ARC LTER Toolik acidic tundra and at a toposequence along the floodplain of the Sagavanirktuk River using 2 N KCL and weak HCL extracts. This file complies data collected at different times from 1987 through 2001 and includes initial extracts taken for buried bag method of net nitrogen mineralization.
Arctic LTER 1991: Percent moisture, bulk density, percent loss on ignition and percent organic carbon were measured for peat collected from soils in the Imnavait Creek watershed.
Percent moisture, bulk density, percent loss on ignition and percent organic carbon were measured for peat collected from soils in the Imnavait Creek watershed.
Radiocarbon dates for an elevational gradient by Toolik Lake, North Slope of Alaska 1988.
Two cores of peat, approximately 15 cm2, were cut to the depth at which mineral soils were encountered at each site. The sites of sampling correspond to an elevational gradient leading from the lakeside upslope to the begining of the water track at the ridgetop. Each sample was divided into three sections, one section to be used for radiocarbon age , one for loss on ignition, and the remainder to be kept for future needs.
