Title: NGEE Arctic Tram: Overview of Tram-mounted Instruments, Co-located Data, Measurement Position, Elevation and Polygon Characterization, Barrow, Alaska, 2014-2018

Abstract

The NGEE-Arctic Tram operated from 2014 - 2018. It was installed on the Barrow Environmental Observatory in Barrow, Alaska in late May of 2014 and operated through mid-November 2014. The subsequent 2015 through 2018 years followed a similar schedule, but with different deployment dates and data gaps, with the goal always to capture the surface dynamics of the snow melt, growing, and freeze-up seasons. This Tram overview dataset has three objectives: (1) provide new data users with a brief description of the Tram system and its research purposes; (2) provide generally useful Tram site characterization details, including measurement position ground surface elevation, characteristics of the Arctic polygonal tundra under the Tram, vegetation community composition (future), and derived image products; and (3) reference all of the data products and archived datasets that were collected with the Tram-mounted sensors and co-located instruments. This overview dataset will be updated as new Tram products become available.
