Group: Summary

   This data set contains meteorological, radiation, soil, and snow data from 
   several sites in three regions in Alaska: Ivotuk, Kougarok and Council.

   The goal of the project is to improve the understanding of the role that soil 
   moisture and surface temperature play in affecting the surface energy balance, 
   sub-surface thermal dynamics, and vegetation distribution.

   Measurements were taken as part of the Land-Atmosphere-Ice Interactions Arctic 
   Transitions in the Land-Atmosphere System (LAII-ATLAS) program. The research 
   project was funded by the Arctic System Sciences (ARCSS) Program, grant number 
   OPP-9818066.

   Please refer to the ATLAS Ivotuk, Kougarok, and Council web site 
   (http://www.uaf.edu/water/projects/atlas/ivotuk/ivotuk.html) for a complete 
   description of this project and the resulting data.

   Data are available by FTP.
