Group: Summary

   This data set consists of air and soil temperatures from various sites in 
   Alaska between 1995 and 2001. Data loggers recorded soil temperatures at 1 cm 
   below the ground or snow surface, and air temperatures at 1.6 m above the 
   surface. Temperatures are given in degrees Celcius. Data collection sites 
   around the state include: Toolik Lake, Galbraith, Happy Valley, Prudhoe Bay, 
   Council, Livengood, Yukon River, Barrow, Gold Creek, Kanuti River, Fairbanks, 
   Chandalar, and Graylink Lake.

   The data consist of 53 space-delimited ASCII text files, and are available via 
   ftp. Each data file contains date, time, and temperature columns, and some 
   files contain additional data. A table in the documentation for this data set 
   lists each data file and its contents.

   The research project was funded by the Arctic System Sciences (ARCSS) Program, 
   grant number OPP-9321730.
