Description

This dataset provides vegetation community characteristics, soil moisture, and biophysical data collected in 2019 from 11 study areas, which contained 28 sites that were burned by wildfires in 2014 and 2015, and 14 unburned sites in the Northwest Territories (NWT), Canada. Burn sites included peatland and upland. These field data include vegetation inventories, ground cover, as well as diameter and height for trees and shrubs in the unburned sites. Similar data were collected for the unburned sites in the years 2015-18 and are available in related separate datasets. In 2019, the focus was on woody and non-woody seedling/sprouting regrowth data in the burned sites. Additional measurements collected at all sites included total peat depth, soil moisture, and active layer thickness (ALT). Soil moisture and ALT were collected for validation of the UAVSAR airborne collection and Radarsat-2 overpasses. This 2019 fieldwork completes five years of field sampling at the wildfire areas.
