Data file containing optical characterization of colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM). Data include CDOM absorption coefficients, water column light attenuation coefficients, specific UV light absorbance (SUVA254), spectral slope ratio, and fluorescence index from waters near Toolik Lake on the North Slope of Alaska. A synthesis of the data presented here is published in Cory et al. 2013, PNAS 110:3429-3434, and in Cory et al. 2014, Science 345:925-928.
Yearly file containing information on bacterial productivity. Samples were collected at various sites near Toolik Research Station (68 38'N, 149 36'W). Sample site descriptors include an assigned number (sortchem), site, date, time and depth.
Data file of the biogeochemistry of samples collected at various sites near Toolik Lake, North Slope of Alaska. Sample site descriptors include a unique assigned number (sortchem), site, date, time, depth, distance (downstream from a reference location), elevation, treatment, date-time, category, and water type (lake, surface, soil). Physical measures collected in the field include temperature (water, soil, well water), conductivity, pH, and average thaw depth in soil. Chemical analyses for the sample include alkalinity; dissolved inorganic and organic carbon (DIC and DOC); dissolved gas
