Description

This dataset, titled the Synthesized Alaskan Tundra Field Database (SATFiD), provides a comprehensive collection of in-situ field data compiled from 37 existing datasets resulting from field surveys conducted at Alaska tundra sites between 1972 to 2020. The data were harmonized prior to being included in this dataset. The variables include active layer thickness, vegetation cover (by plant functional types), soil moisture and temperatures, as well as the wildfire history. SATFiD provides a unique lens into various long-term ecological processes within the tundra (such as the fire-permafrost-vegetation interactions) under a rapidly changing climate.
