Description:

Abstract:

This data set contains modeled daily thaw depth and freezing depth for the Arctic terrestrial drainage basin. Thaw and freezing depths were calculated over the study area with a resolution of 25 km x 25 km. Data extend from September 1998 through December 2000. A finite-difference model for one-dimensional heat conduction with phase change calculates daily thaw and freezing depths, based on data of snow water equivalent, soil temperature, soil dry-bulk density, and soil water content. Data are in space-delimited ASCII text format and are available via FTP.
