Synthesis and Scaling of Hydrologic and Biogeochemical Data on the North Slope and Coastal Zone of Alaska


Understanding land-ocean-atmosphere coupling is essential for developing an integrated view of the arctic system, and is a key component of the Study of the Northern Alaska Coastal System (SNACS) program. As an important contribution to SNACS, this data set contributes to an investigation of the linkage between hydrologic variables and constituent (nutrients and organic matter) fluxes. The overarching goal of the project of which this work is a part, is to develop a generalized understanding of discharge-constituent relationships in arctic basins. For this data set, water chemistry data were collected between May and August from sites on the Kuparuk, Sagavanirktok, and Colville rivers during 2006 and 2007.
