Description

This dataset includes soil temperature profile measurements taken at 63 monitoring sites associated with the USArray program, located across the NASA ABoVE domain in interior Alaska. The measurement dates and depths vary per site as does measurement frequency (hourly or every 6 hours). Measurements were made from the soil surface to a maximum depth of 1.5 m from 2016-2021 using temperature sensors attached to HOBO data loggers. These measurement stations complement existing temperature monitoring networks allowing for better characterization of ground temperatures and permafrost conditions across Alaska. This station data complement an existing temperature monitoring network, allowing for better characterization of ground temperatures and permafrost conditions in northern and western Alaska. The temperature measurements are provided for each site in 64 data files in comma-separated values (.csv) format. Site descriptive data are also provided for soil, vegetation, and location.
