Meteorological, Radiation, Soil, and Snow Data from Alaska Sites, 1998-2008


This data set contains meteorological, radiation, soil, and snow data from sites in Ivotuk and the Seward Peninsula in Alaska. The goal of the project is to improve the understanding of the role that soil moisture and surface temperature play in affecting the surface energy balance, sub-surface thermal dynamics, and vegetation distribution. Measurements were taken as part of the Land-Atmosphere-Ice Interactions - Arctic Transitions in the Land-Atmosphere System (LAII-ATLAS) program. The research project was funded by the Arctic System Sciences (ARCSS) Program, grant number OPP-9818066.
