Description

This dataset includes vegetation cover maps, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) maps, snow depth and thaw depth data that were obtained as part of a biocomplexity project on the North Slope of Alaska, USA, and the Northwest Territories (NWT), Canada. In Alaska, seven sites are located along the Dalton Highway and in the Prudhoe Bay Oilfield area, forming a transect across the climate gradient of the North Slope. From South to North, the sites are Happy Valley, Sagwon (an acidic and nonacidic site), Franklin Bluffs, Deadhorse, West Dock and Howe Island. Four sites are in the NWT, forming a latitudinal gradient from South to North; the sites include Inuvik, Green Cabin, Mould Bay, and Isachsen.
