Dataset includes mid-day measurements of CO2 exchange in hummocks and pools with and without open-top experimental warming chambers (OTCs). Measurements were made using a LI-6200 and a clear acrylic 20 x 20 x 20 cm chamber over a 30 second period beginning 15 seconds after chamber placement. The study was carried out in a fen near Thule (Pituffik), Greenland (76 deg 33' N, 68 deg 30' W). Coverage is from 20040706- 20060818.
