Group: Summary

   This data set contains soil temperature, soil moisture, thaw depth, and snow 
   depth data collected at test sites near Barrow, Alaska, during the following 
   years.

   Soil temperature data - 1963-1966, 1993  Soil moisture data - 1963  Thaw depth 
   - 1962-1968, 1991-1993  Snow depth - 1963-1964  This study focused on 
   characterizing the active soil layer at Barrow, and determining the 
   relationships between and among these physical properties at permafrost sites 
   in the Arctic.

   This site is U1 of the IPA's Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) 
   Program and later measurements are available at the CALM Web site.
