Group: Summary

   Data from Barrow Environmental Observatory, Point  Barrow and Barter Island 
   Long Range Radar Sites (LRRS), taken  during August 1993 and August 1994. Thaw 
   depth data from:   
1.  31 vegetation plots used for a vegetation 
   classification (Aug  1994). Data report includes mean thaw depth of 5 
   measurements at  each plot. Data are also reported as means and standard error 
     for each of 10 vegetation types;   
2.  a 400-m topographic transect across 
   beach ridge north of  Central Marsh (Aug 1993);   
3. a 360-m transect across 
   the Barrow LRRS drainage ditch (Aug  1994). Data are summarized in graphic 
   form showing topographic  relief (1 meter intervals) and thaw depth (2 meter 
   intervals).  Plant species were recorded at 1 meter intervals.   
Data are 
   available from the ARCSS Data Coordination Center at the  National Snow and 
   Ice Data Center, Boulder, CO, at
