Title: Depth resolved core physical-chemical data from Site 0 and AB transect, Barrow, Alaska

Abstract

This is a compilation of the physical and chemical data for cores collected at the NGEE-arctic site 0 and ABCD plots. The datasets are depth-resolved and down to ~ 4m below ground surface for some cores. The specific depths for each core where samples were analyzed vary from core to core.

  • Continuous Snow depth data are being collected at several points within four intensive study areas in Barrow, Alaska. These data are being collected to better understand the energy dynamics above the active layer and permafrost. They complement in-situ snow and soil measurements at this location. The data could also be used as supporting measurements for other research and modeling activities.
  • Measurements made from a 2014-2016 field glucose addition experiment. Dataset includes measurements of surface trace gas emissions (Delta13C of ecosystem respiration and source-partitioned surface CO2 flux, CH4 flux, and GPP), soil profile information (concentrations of carbon, nitrogen, and soil microbial biomass carbon, Delta13C of soil organic matter and microbial biomass, gravimetric water content, and bulk density), soil mineral nitrogen availability, and field-measured soil temperature, air temperature and soil moisture. Experiment was conducted in a region of high-centered polygons on the BEO. Data will be available Fall 2017.
  • This dataset represent a map of the high center (HC) and low center (LC) polygon boundaries delineated from high resolution LiDAR data for the arctic coastal plain at Barrow, Alaska. The polygon troughs are considered as the surface expression of the ice-wedges. The troughs are in lower elevations than the interior polygon. The trough widths were initially identified from LiDAR data, and the boundary between two polygons assumed to be located along the lowest elevations on trough widths between them.
  • The dataset represents microtopographic characterization of the ice-wedge polygon landscape in Barrow, Alaska. Three microtopographic features are delineated using 0.25 m high resolution digital elevation dataset derived from LiDAR. The troughs, rims, and centers are the three categories in this classification scheme. The polygon troughs are the surface expression of the ice-wedges that are in lower elevations than the interior polygon. The elevated shoulders of the polygon interior immediately adjacent to the polygon troughs are the polygon rims for the low center polygons. In case of high center polygons, these features are the topographic highs. In this classification scheme, bothmore » topographic highs and rims are considered as polygon rims. The next version of the dataset will include more refined classification scheme including separate classes for rims ad topographic highs. The interior part of the polygon just adjacent to the polygon rims are the polygon centers.« less
  • This dataset consists of field measurements of soil properties made during 2012 and 2013 in areas A-D of Intensive Site 1 at the Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE) Arctic site near Barrow, Alaska. Included are i) weekly measurements of thaw depth, soil moisture, presence and depth of standing water, and soil temperature made during the 2012 and 2013 growing seasons (June - September) and ii) half-hourly measurements of soil temperature logged continuously during the period June 2012 to September 2013.
