Title: Eddy-Covariance and auxiliary measurements, NGEE-Barrow, 2012-2013

The EC tower is operated as part of the Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment-Arctic (NGEE) at Barrow, Alaska. The tower is collecting flux data from the beginning of the thaw season, early June, and until conditions are completely frozen, early November. The tower is equipped with a Gill R3-50 Sonic Anemometer, LI-7700 (CH4) sensor, a LI-7500A (CO2/H2O) sensor, and radiation sensors (Kipp and Zonen CNR-4 (four component radiometer), two LiCor LI-190 quantum sensors (PAR upwelling and downwelling), and a down-looking Apogee SI-111 infrared radiometer (surface temperature)). The sensors are remotely controlled, and communication with the tower allows us to retrieve information in real time.

  1. The NGEE Arctic Webcam (PTZ Camera) captures two views of seasonal transitions from its generally south-facing position on a tower located at the Barrow Environmental Observatory near Barrow, Alaska. Images are captured every 30 minutes. Historical images are available for download. The camera is operatedmore » by the U.S. DOE sponsored Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments - Arctic (NGEE Arctic) project. « less
  2. This dataset consists of measurements of vegetation harvested from Areas A to D of Intensive Site 1 at the Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE) Arctic site near Barrow, Alaska. The dataset includes i) values of leaf area index, biomass, carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P)more » content of aboveground plant parts from 0.25 m × 0.25 m clip-plots at peak growing season and ii) fine-root biomass from 5.08-cm diameter soil cores taken throughout the active layer in the same location as the clip plots in late July-early August 2012, and iii) values of aboveground biomass and nitrogen (N) content measured from 0.1 m × 0.1 m clip-plots harvested at 2-week intervals throughout the 2013 growing season. « less
  3. This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site US-NGB NGEE Barrow. Site Description - The ecosystem is an Arctic coastal tundra. This site measures greenhouse gasses and meteorological variables at the Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO) as part of the Next-Generationmore » Ecosystem Experiment - Arctic. « less
  4. The dataset contains half-hourly eddy covariance flux measurements and determinations, companion meteorological measurements, and ancillary data from the flux tower (US-NGB) on the Barrow Environmental Observatory at Barrow (Utqiagvik), Alaska for the period 2012 through 2016. Data have been processed using EddyPro software and screenedmore » by the contributor. The flux tower sits in an Arctic coastal tundra ecosystem. This dataset updates a previous dataset by reprocessing a longer period of record in the same manner.

  5. 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 depthmore » 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. « less
