Group: Summary

   This data set consists of daily air, water, and soil temperature, wind speed, 
   vapor pressure, and the sum of global radiation and unfrozen precipitation 
   data from the Toolik Lake area of Alaska between 1998 and 2002. The data 
   includes readings from two sites: the Toolik Arctic Long Term Ecological 
   Research (LTER) Tundra site and the nearby Toolik Tussock Experimental plots 
   site that includes soil measurements from fertilized and unfertilized 
   greenhouse and 'shadehouse' areas.

   Data loggers recorded soil temperatures at various intervals down to 150 cm. 
   Air temperatures were recorded between 1 and 5 meters. The data consist of 28 
   comma-delimited ASCII text files, and are available via ftp. Data files for 
   each site contain slightly different meteorological parameters. This data set 
   is a subset of the more comprehensive data set, Monitoring and Manipulation of 
   Tundra Response to Climate Change, Arctic LTER, Toolik Lake, Alaska. 

   The research project was funded by the Arctic System Sciences (ARCSS) Program, 
   grant number OPP-9810222.
