Group: Summary

   This data set presents various climate data from sites in Barrow and Atquasuk, 
   on the Northern Slope of Alaska. Parameters include thaw depth, air 
   temperature, precipitation, wind speed, light intensity, plant canopy 
   temperature, soil temperature, soil moisture, soil salinity, and relative 
   humidity. Data were collected between June 1995 and August 2001 by various 
   sensors connected to data loggers. Air and soil temperatures are given in 
   degrees Celsius and wind speed is measured in meters per second. All other 
   paramater measurements are detailed in the documentation. The research project 
   was funded by the Arctic System Sciences (ARCSS) Program, grant number OPP 
   9714103. Data are available via FTP.
