This dataset provides terrestrial lidar scanning (TLS) point cloud data collected at 10 research plots along the forest-tundra ecotone (FTE) in the Brooks Range of Alaska, south of Chandalar Shelf and Atigun Pass on the east side of the Dalton Highway. Data were collected in mid-June 2016. Data were acquired for each plot from multiple scan positions with a Leica ScanStation C10 green wavelength laser instrument. After processing the point spacing is < 1 cm. TLS enables resolution of 3-dimensional landscape features that can be used to derive ecologically important metrics of canopy structure and surface topography at high spatial resolution.
