Group: Summary

   This data set contains elevated soil temperature and water table manipulation 
   measurements taken at a tundra site near Barrow, Alaska, USA. Eighteen 60-cm 
   diameter polycarbonate cylinders were installed into the ground at the end of 
   the 1998 growing season when thaw depth was at its seasonal maximum to isolate 
   plots of tundra. The cylinders were organized into three blocks of six for 
   three replicates of the six treatments to be tested. The six factors tested 
   include: control, elevated water table, lowered water table, elevated soil 
   temperature, elevated soil temperature and elevated water table, and elevated 
   soil temperature and lowered water table.  Temperature data were collected 
   from June 1999, until September 2001.

   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-9732105.

   Data are available by FTP.
