Air and Ground Surface Temperatures From the Kuparuk Basin, Alaska, 1994-1996


This dataset includes air and ground surface temperatures from 31 sites in the Kuparuk Basin, Alaska, between 1994 and 1996. The temperatures were measured using inexpensive miniature data loggers and a simplified instrument mounting system. The system was originally designed for recording winter air temperatures. Summer air temperatures have been adversely affected by solar heating and should be used with caution.
