Group: Summary

   This data set includes soil temperature and ground temperature in 10 m 
   boreholes, and active layer thickness, at 30 stations in both natural and 
   disturbed conditions near gas pipelines, measured each September. The stations 
   were also monitored yearly in July-August, and ecological parameters such as 
   species composition, plant abundance, mean height of plants, and projection 
   coverage were measured. A digital landscape map (scale 1 to 5000) was compiled 
   for Nadym station. These data were collected at Circumpolar Active Layer 
   Monitoring (CALM) Program Network Site ID R1.
