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
