Description

This dataset provides visible-near infrared spectral reflectance, descriptions of vegetation cover, surface temperature, the total fraction of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (fAPAR, 2001 only), permafrost active layer depth, elevation, and soil temperature at 5 cm depth. Measurements were made at every meter along a 100-m transect aligned mainly in an east-west direction, located approximately 300 m southeast of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Global Monitoring Laboratory (GML) baseline observatory near Utqiagvik, Alaska. Reflectance measurements were collected at nearly weekly intervals through the growing seasons of 2000 to 2002 to describe characteristics of green-up, peak growth, and senescence. Reflectance measurements were also collected once near peak growth in 2022. Ancillary measurements were collected at intervals through the 2001 and 2002 growing seasons.
