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.
This file contains the fish number, recap number, species, lengths, weights, sex and a list of tissues sampled of fish captured in lakes near the Toolik Lake Arctic LTER site during summers from 1986 to present. The file also contains information from gill-netted fish (if any), sacrificed fish, and accidentally killed fish. All dead fish are included, and if their stomachs and otoliths were taken, that is noted also.
Zooplankton density in number per liter for all samples collected from arctic lakes near Toolik Lake Field Station (Arctic LTER) in summer from 1983 to 1992 (inclusive).
NOTE: The dates for 1992 are WRONG in versions 1 and 2.
The original dates were entered in several date formats which resulted in conversion errors.
