Description

This dataset provides vegetation community characteristics and biophysical data collected in 2018 from areas that were burned by wildfire in 2014 and 2015, and from nine unburned validation sites in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The data include vegetation inventories, ground cover, regrowth, tree diameter and height, and woody seedling/sprouting data at burned sites, and similar vegetation community characterization at unburned validation sites. Additional measurements included soil moisture, collected for validation of the UAVSAR airborne collection, and depth to frozen ground at the nine unburned sites. This 2018 fieldwork completes four years of field sampling at the wildfire areas.
