Short Name:

Arctic Vegetation Plots in Flux Tower Footprints, North Slope, Alaska, 2014

This data set provides vegetation, environmental, and soil data collected from plots located in the footprints of eddy covariance flux towers along a 300 km north-south latitudinal gradient from Barrow, to Atqasuk, and to Ivotuk across the North Slope of Alaska in 2014. Within each of the five flux tower footprints, 1x1-m quadrats were placed subjectively within widespread habitat or micro-habitat types to map the dominant vegetation communities and site environmental factors. Specific attributes included species cover data and environmental, soil and spectral data (active layer thaw depth, moss layer depth, organic horizon layer depth, standing water depth, soil moisture status, vegetation height, LAI).
