  1. 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.

  2. 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
  3. Six individual ice cores were collected from Barrow Environmental Observatory in Barrow, Alaska, in May of 2013 as part of the Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment (NGEE). Each core was drilled from a different location at varying depths. A few days after drilling, the cores weremore » stored in coolers packed with dry ice and flown to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in Berkeley, CA. 3-dimensional images of the cores were constructed using a medical X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner at 120kV. Hydraulic conductivity samples were extracted from these cores at LBNL Richmond Field Station in Richmond, CA, in February 2014 by cutting 5 to 8 inch segments using a chop saw. Samples were packed individually and stored at freezing temperatures to minimize any changes in structure or loss of ice content prior to analysis. Hydraulic conductivity was determined through falling head tests using a permeameter [ELE International, Model #: K-770B]. After approximately 12 hours of thaw, initial falling head tests were performed. Two to four measurements were collected on each sample and collection stopped when the applied head load exceeded 25% change from the original load. Analyses were performed between 2 to 3 times for each sample. The final hydraulic conductivity calculations were computed using methodology of Das et al., 1985. « less

  5. 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
