Halomethane and methane net fluxes in northern Alaskan tundra, Barrow and Toolik Lake


These data quantify fluxes of environmentally important trace gases between the coastal tundra and atmosphere, including methyl halides, chloroform and methane. The methyl halides and chloroform are ozone-depleting compounds, while methane is a potent greenhouse gas. Sampling sites were located at two field sites at Barrow and Toolik Lake.
