Biocomplexity Associated with the Response of Tundra Carbon Balance to Warming and Drying


The research involved with these data examines how biological and physical processes interact to control carbon uptake, storage and release in Arctic tundra ecosystems and how the self-organizing nature of these interactions varies across multiple spatial and temporal scales. This data set contains gridded and thematic data in addition to micrometeorological, CO2 and CH4 flux measurements from the Biocomplexity Experimental Site. Data are presented in TAR file format, with the following naming conventions:

BE_ = Biocomplexity Experimental Site Data
GD_ = Gridded Data
TD_ = Thematic Data
