Monitoring and Manipulation of Tundra Response to Climate Change, Arctic LTER, Toolik Lake, Alaska
The investigator has undertaken long-term field experiments and monitoring at the Arctic Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) station, Toolik Lake, Alaska, exploring the effects of climate change on tundra vegetation. The resulting diverse data sets include, but are not limited to, biomass, species composition, stem growth, plant phenology, soil chemistry, soil moisture, greenhouse gas flux, surface water temperature, and weather data. The ARCSS Data Coordination Center provides links to these data, which are archived at the LTER Web site. A subset of these data, Daily Soil Temperature and Meteorological Data for Sites at Toolik Lake Alaska, is available at NSIDC.
