Group: Summary

   This data set contains climate, flux, and bulk density data from Ivotuk and 
   Council (Seward Peninsula), Alaska, collected from 1998 through 2000.

   Surface energy and trace gas exchange measurements were made at each of the 
   four Ivotuk sites using the eddy covariance technique. 

   Three flux and climate towers operated at Council, Seward Peninsula, during 
   1999 and 2000. Two towers were located at the tundra and forest sites. The 
   third tower was a mobile tower and during 1999 covered four different surface 
   types: lowshrub, shrub, woodland, and burned tundra. During 2000, the mobile 
   tower covered tall shrub, tundra ISS2, burned tundra, heath and shallow thaw 
   lake. The data have been divided by surface type or site and by data type 
   (flux or climate). The data set also includes mean bulk density measurements 
   for soil layers, collected in 1999.

    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.

    Data are available by FTP.
