Title: Vegetation Warming Experiment: Chamber and ambient plot digital camera imagery for vegetation phenology, Utqiagvik (Barrow), Alaska, 2017

Abstract

Time lapse photography of experimental plots within five warming chambers (ZPWs) and paired control plots located on the Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO), Barrow (now Utqia?vik), Alaska. Images were recorded from 21 June to 18 September, 2017 to capture vegetation dynamics during the growing season. Vegetation phenology, including green up and senescence were captured. Images were recorded daily at 30 minute intervals, from 11:00 ? 14:30 Alaska daylight time (AKDT, UTC-8), using Wingscapes TimelapseCam cameras. The target species was Petasites frigidus.The Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments: Arctic (NGEE Arctic), was a 10-year research effort (2012-2022) to reduce uncertainty in Earth System Models by developing a predictive understanding of carbon-rich Arctic ecosystems and feedbacks to climate. NGEE Arctic was supported by the Department of Energy?s Office of Biological and Environmental Research. The NGEE Arctic project had two field research sites: 1) located within the Arctic polygonal tundra coastal region on the Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO) and the North Slope near Last update: September 16, 2022 2 Utqiagvik (Barrow), Alaska and 2) multiple areas on the discontinuous permafrost region of the Seward Peninsula north of Nome, Alaska. Through observations, experiments, and synthesis with existing datasets, NGEE Arctic provided an enhanced knowledge base for multi-scale modeling and contributedmore » to improved process representation at global pan-Arctic scales within the Department of Energy?s Earth system Model (the Energy Exascale Earth System Model, or E3SM), and specifically within the E3SM Land Model component (ELM).« less
