Group: Summary

   This data set provides snow depth measurements  in the study area at Toolik 
   Station, Alaska, taken once yearly on May 2nd, for the years 1995 through 
   2001. Measurements were taken by hand using a  steel tile probe and are given 
   in centimeters. The study area is designed in 1.5 meter by 1.5 meter plots, 3 
   meters apart. 10 measurements were taken within each plot. Data are in table 
   format in text files and are available via FTP.

   This work was funded by the National Science Foundation as a part of the 
   Arctic System Science (ARCSS) Program grants: OPP-9321626, OPP-9615845, and  
   OPP-9907185.
