Description

This dataset provides in situ measurements of radial tree growth of selected white spruce (Picea glauca) and black spruce (Picea mariana) trees, as well as simultaneous in situ measurements of environmental variables (air temperature, air pressure, relative humidity, soil temperature, volumetric water content, and solar irradiance) at two Arctic treeline sites: one in the Brooks Range of Alaska (AK), USA, and the other near Inuvik, Northwest Territories (NWT), Canada. In AK, 36 trees were monitored from June 7, 2016 to September 13, 2019, and in NWT, 24 trees were monitored from July 5, 2017 to July 25, 2019 with a sampling interval of 5- or 20-minutes for radial tree growth and 5-minutes for all environmental variables. The dendrometer data included in this dataset are only those gathered from 2016-2017. Dendrometer data from 2018-2019 are available from a related dataset. The data were collected to better understand the influence of environmental variables on radial tree growth dynamics. The data are provided in comma-separated values (CSV) format.
