Barrow and Barter Island Long Range Radar Sites (LRRS), taken
during August 1993 and August 1994. Thaw depth data from:

1. 31 vegetation plots used for a vegetation classification (Aug
1994). Data report includes mean thaw depth of 5 measurements at
each plot. Data are also reported as means and standard error
for each of 10 vegetation types;

2. a 400-m topographic transect across beach ridge north of
Central Marsh (Aug 1993);

3. a 360-m transect across the Barrow LRRS drainage ditch (Aug
1994). Data are summarized in graphic form showing topographic
relief (1 meter intervals) and thaw depth (2 meter intervals).
Plant species were recorded at 1 meter intervals.
