Description

This data set provides estimates of Active Layer Thickness (ALT) determined with ground-based measurements, and calculated soil volumetric water content (VWC) at four selected sites around Barrow, Alaska in August 2013. ALT was determined using a ground-penetrating radar (GPR) system and traditional mechanical probing. Calculated uncertainties are also included. GPR measurements were taken along four transects of varying length (approx. 1 to 7 km). Mechanical probing included several high-density surveys (every 1 m within 100-m survey line) along each GPR transect. VWC of the active layer soil was calculated at 3-8 calibration points per site where the probe measurement was exactly co-located with a GPR trace.
