Description

This data set provides environmental, soil, and vegetation data collected from study sites on the North Slope and Seward Peninsula of Alaska during the Arctic Transition in Land-Atmosphere System (ATLAS) project. ATLAS-1 sites on the North Slope, located in Barrow, Atqasuk, Oumalik, and Ivotuk, were sampled in 1998-1999. ATLAS-2 sites located at Council and Quartz Creek on the Seward Peninsula were sampled in 2000. Specific attributes include dominant vegetation species and cover, biomass, soil chemistry and moisture, leaf area index (LAI), normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), topography and elevation, and plant cover abundance.
