We measured the flux of bulk material and major macronutrients (carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus) from the water column to the benthos in four separate lakes during the summer of 2009. The lakes were chosen to investigate the impacts of disturbance on lake sedimentation. Two of the lakes, Dimple and Perched, were within catchments that were burned by the 2007 Anaktuvuk River wildfire. Two of the lakes, NE-14 and Perched, were receiving elevated sediment loads from thermokarst failures on their shorelines, and Toolik Lake was used as a reference lake.
Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) measurements from Toolik Lake Inlet and Toolik Lake main sampling station for 2005-2008. The earliest measurements were in May and with the latest in September.
Mean daily discharge data for Oksrukuyik Creek for mid May-Septemeber 1988, calculated from data acquired from USGS-Fairbanks.
More detailed methods of their Hydrologic Unit, calibration measurements and regression curve were not available at the time of this file.
Zooplankton density, in number per liter, was taken with a 30 cm diameter plankton net with a 335 um mesh plankton netting. All samples were collected from Toolik Lake and the lakes near the Toolik Field Station, Arctic LTER from 1993-2002.
NOTE: In versions pervious to 3 the dates for 1994 and 1995 were WRONG.
File containing data on bacterial productivity in lakes and streams collected in summer 2012 through 2018. Samples were collected at various sites near Toolik Lake Field Station (68 38'N, 149 36'W). Sample site descriptors include an assigned number (sortchem), site, date, time and depth, and bacterial production.
