Hierarchic GIS: Process, Pattern and Scale for Analysis of Arctic Ecosystems (ITEX)
This study is developing a GIS at multiple scales for the
Kuparuk River Basin and other sites in Alaska. The project includes
geobotanical sampling of 1 x 1 km grids at 100 m intervals for
vegetation, soils, and active layer depth. Sites are:
These sites are part of the IPA Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) Program.
