Soil Temperatures, Toolik Lake, Alaska, 1995 and 1996


Soil temperatures were measured at the Toolik Lake Field Station during the summers of 1995 and 1996. Measurements were made on control plots, plots from which snow was removed, and plots from which snow was removed before the installation of heating cables at 10-cm depth. Plots with heating cables were heated two hours per day. Soil temperatures were recorded once per minute using a Campbell 21X micrologger measuring a thermocouple located at 5-cm soil depth in an intertussock area within each plot. Data are available in ASCII and MS Excel formats.
