GroMeteorological parameters were measured hourly adjacent to thermokarst features in the region around Toolik Field Station. Pressure, rainfall, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, air temperature and relative humidity were all measured at 1-3m above the ground surface with an Onset U30 weather station connected to all sensors.
Ground temperatures were measured hourly at ~20-50cm intervals below the ground surface inside and adjacent to thermokarst features in the region around Toolik Field Station. Ground temperatures were measured using Hobo thermistors. Temperatures at 0 and 20cm depths were measured directly in the ground whereas 40cm and deeper measurements were logged from dry wells installed in summer 2009. NE14_TS02dot02_temp is located in the old NE14 thermokarst, upslope.
