Weather Moist Acidic Tussock (MAT)

In 1990 a Campbell datalogger was installed in block 2 of the Toolik LTER experimental tussock plots. Sensors were placed in a control, fertilized, greenhouse, greenhouse fertilized, shade house and shade house fertilized sites.
In each plot two strings (one in a tussock and one in a moss dominated area) of copper/copper-nickel thermocouple wires (TC) were installed at depths of 10, 20, and 40 cm. The following label codes were used: CT=control, GH = greenhouses, SH = shade houses, F=fertilized, GF= greenhouse fertilized, SF = Shade house fertilized, with a suffix of 1 for Eriophorum vaginatum tussock or 2 for moss bed. All measurements are in degree Celsius. All soil sensors were read every 15 minutes and averaged every 3 hours. During early years due to storage limitations just daily soil values were stored during the winter months.
In the control plot additional sensors include: global solar radiation, photosynthetically active radiation, unfrozen precipitation, and at 3 meters: air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction. In greenhouses and shade houses plots, air temperature, relative humidity and photosynthetically active radiation are also measured during the growing season. See Sensors for a detailed description of each sensor used. Each sensor is read every minute and averaged or totaled every hour.
The soil sensors have been very problematic.  The sensors strings would move with freezing and thawing of the soil.  Most strings were heaved up 3 - 10 cm.  Soil data are being evaluated to determent the usable data and will be added when completely error checked.

Title Abstract
Hourly weather data from the Arctic LTER Moist Acidic Tussock Experimental plots from 2011 to present, Toolik Filed Station, North Slope, Alaska.
Hourly weather data from the LTER Moist Acidic Tussock Experimental plots. The station was installed in 1990 in block 2 of the Toolik LTER experimental moist acidic tussock plots. The plots are located on a hillside near Toolik Lake (68 38' N, 149 36'W). Global solar radiation, photosynthetic active radiation, unfrozen precipitation, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction are measured at 3 meters. Additional sensors in greenhouses and shade houses plots measure... more

Soil and canopy temperature data from the LTER Moist Acidic Tussock Experimental plots. In 1989 a treatment plots were established in a moist acidic tundra. Treatments include nitrogen and phosphorus addition, warming with a simple greenhouse, warming with nitrogen and phosphorus addition, shading with shade cloth and shading with nitrogen and phosphorus. In 1990 data logger was installed in block 2 to measure soil temperatures and basic meteorological data. The plots are located on a... more

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
