Title Abstract
Imnavait Watershed Thaw Depth Survey Summary for 2003 to present, Arctic LTER, Toolik Research Station, Alaska.
Thaw depth was measured using a steel probe in the Imnavait Creek watershed, near Toolik Lake, Alaska. The thaw grid includes measurements made from the valley bottom (on both sides of the stream), up the hillslope to the hilltop (watershed boundary). The thaw grid is near Imnavait water tracks 7 and 8, and measurements have been made from the 2003 season until present. Two surveys are conducted each summer, on 2 July and on 11 August (plus or minus 1-2 days on either side of those dates... more
Weather Moist Acidic Tussock (MAT)
Title Abstract
Daily summary of 10 cm soil temperatures in the Arctic LTER moist acidic experimental plots from 1998 to present, Toolik Lake Field Station, Alaska.
Daily summary of 10 cm soil temperatures in the Arctic LTER moist acidic experimental plots for the control (CT), greenhouse (GH), greenhouse plus nitrogen and phosphorus (GHNP) and nitrogen and phosphorus (NP) plots. Soil temperature probes in the tundra soil were problematic with frost heaving causing the depth of measurements to change. In order to provide a consistent year to year temperature record notes on changes in depths were used to select the temperature sensor that was within +... more

Thermokarst Streams
Title Abstract
ARCSS/TK stream dissolved organic carbon biodegradability (2011).
The (ARCSSTK) did extensive research during 2009-2011 field seasons in Arctic Alaska. The objective of this data set was to measure the quantity and biodegradability of DOC from headwater streams and rivers across three geographic regions and across four natural ‘treatments’ (reference; thermokarst-; burned-, and thermokarst + burned-impacted streams) to evaluate which factors most strongly influence DOC quantity and biodegradablity at a watershed scale.
Landscape Interactions Watershed Thaw Survey
Title Abstract
Tussock watershed thaw depth survey summary for 1990 to present, Arctic Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER), Toolik Research Station, Alaska.
Thaw depth was measured since 1990 using a steel probe in the Tussock watershed just south of Toolik Lake, Alaska, on a gentle slope dominated by moist, non-acidic tussock tundra. At least two surveys are conducted each summer, on 2 July and on 11 August (plus or minus 1 day).
