Abstract:

This study is developing a GIS at multiple scales for the Kuparuk River Basin and other sites in Alaska. The project includes geobotanical sampling of 1 x 1 km grids at 100 m intervals for vegetation, soils, and active layer depth. Sites are: <BR><BR> U1 Barrow Grid (71 deg 20 min N, 156 deg 30 min W) <BR> U3 Atkasook Grid (70 deg. 27 min N, 157 deg 25 min W)<BR> U5 West Dock Grid (70 deg 22 min N, 148 deg 34 min W)<BR> U7 Betty Pingo Grid (70 deg 17 min N, 148 deg 52 min W) <BR> U10 Happy Valley Grid (69 deg 9 min N, 148 deg 51 min W) <BR> U11 Imnavait Creek Grid (68 deg 37 min N, 149 deg 18 min W) <BR> U12 Toolik Lake Grid (68 deg 37 min N, 149 deg 36 min W) <BR> R4 GIS also includes Parisento Grid (approx 70 deg N, 76 <BR> deg E).<BR><BR> These sites are part of the IPA Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) Program.
