Soil microbial parameters in Alaskan tundra soil through the winter


This dataset contains measurements of soil nutrient and microbial parameters in tundra soils from the Toolik Field Station through 2008/2009. Soil samples were taken to bracket the winter-to-summer and the summer-to-winter transitions, and then to ensure that at least one full winter was covered. Soil cores were taken and analyzed for inorganic N, extractable organic C and N, and microbial biomass C and N.
