Title: NGEE Arctic Tram: Periodic Soil Moisture, Temperature, and Thaw Depth Measurements across Polygonal Tundra, Barrow, Alaska, 2014-2015

Abstract

Manual measurements of soil moisture, temperature, and thaw depth were collected in the footprint of the NGEE Arctic Tram starting 2014-07-20 and continuing through 2015-07-16. There were 10 periodic sampling events. These measurements were collected under the Tram observational platform. Probes were inserted into ground beneath the track closest to Tram sensors measurement locations at each Tram measurement position (Position # marked on the tracks). A MiniTrase Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) instrument was used to measure volumetric water content (VWC; units = m3/m3). Soil temperature was measured with a thermocouple probe. Depth of thawed soil was measured from the top of the moss layer or top of soil.
