Title Abstract
Long term response of arctic tussock tundra to thermal erosion features: A modeling analysis. Tussock tundra regrowth after a thermal erosion event: Simulation F - increased N deposition
The Multiple Element Limitation (MEL) model is used to simulate the recovery of Alaskan arctic tussock tundra to thermal erosion features (TEFs) caused by permafrost thaw and mass wasting. TEFs could be significant to regional carbon (C) and nutrient budgets because permafrost soils contain large stocks of soil organic matter (SOM) and TEFs are expected to become more frequent as climate warms. These simulations deal only with recovery following TEF stabilization and do not address... more

Terrestrial Invertebrates
Title Abstract
Effects of experimentally altered wolf spider densities and warming on soil microarthropods, litter decomposition, litter N, and soil nutrients near Toolik Field Station, AK in summer 2012
Predators can disproportionately impact the structure and function of ecosystems relative to their biomass. These effects may be exacerbated under warming in ecosystems like the Arctic, where the number and diversity of predators are low and small shifts in community interactions can alter carbon cycle feedbacks. Here we show that warming alters the effects of wolf spiders, a dominant tundra predator, on belowground litter decomposition and nutrient dynamics. Specifically, while high... more

Title Abstract
Long-term changes in tundra carbon balance following wildfire, climate change and potential nutrient addition, a modeling analysis.
A study investigating the mechanisms that control long-term response of tussock tundra to fire and to increases in air temperature, CO2, nitrogen deposition and phosphorus weathering. The MBL MEL was used to simulate the recovery of three types of tussock tundra, unburned, moderately burned, and severely burned in response to changes in climate and nutrient additions. The simulations indicate that the recovery of nutrients lost during wildfire is difficult under a warming climate because... more

Title Abstract
Imnavait Watershed Thaw Depth Survey Summary for 2003 to present, Arctic LTER, Toolik Research Station, Alaska.
Thaw depth was measured using a steel probe in the Imnavait Creek watershed, near Toolik Lake, Alaska. The thaw grid includes measurements made from the valley bottom (on both sides of the stream), up the hillslope to the hilltop (watershed boundary). The thaw grid is near Imnavait water tracks 7 and 8, and measurements have been made from the 2003 season until present. Two surveys are conducted each summer, on 2 July and on 11 August (plus or minus 1-2 days on either side of those dates... more
Fire in the Arctic Landscape
Title Abstract
Anaktuvuk River Burn Eddy Flux Measurements, 2012 Severe Burn Site, North Slope Alaska
We deployed three eddy covariance towers along a burn severity gradient (i.e. severely-, moderately-, and un-burned tundra) to monitor post fire Net Ecosystem Exchange of CO2 (NEE) within the large 2007 Anaktuvuk River fire scar during the summer of 2008. This data represents the 2012 post fire energy and mass exchange at the severe burn site.
Anaktuvuk River Burn Eddy Flux Measurements, 2010 Severe Burn Site, North Slope Alaska
We deployed three eddy covariance towers along a burn severity gradient (i.e. severely-, moderately-, and un-burned tundra) to monitor post fire Net Ecosystem Exchange of CO2 (NEE) within the large 2007 Anaktuvuk River fire scar during the summer of 2008. This data represents the 2010 post fire energy and mass exchange at the severe burn site.
Anaktuvuk River Burn Eddy Flux Measurements, 2008 Severe Burn Site, North Slope Alaska
We deployed three eddy covariance towers along a burn severity gradient (i.e. severely-, moderately-, and un-burned tundra) to monitor post fire Net Ecosystem Exchange of CO2 (NEE) within the large 2007 Anaktuvuk River fire scar during the summer of 2008. This data represents the first post fire growing season's energy and mass exchange at the severe burn site.
Anaktuvuk River Burn Eddy Flux Measurements, 2008 Unburned Site, North Slope Alaska.
We deployed three eddy covariance towers along a burn severity gradient (i.e. severely-, moderately-, and un-burned tundra) to monitor post fire Net Ecosystem Exchange of CO2 (NEE) within the large 2007 Anaktuvuk River fire scar during the summer of 2008. This data represents the first post fire growing season's energy and mass exchange at the unburned site.

Physical measures collected in the field include temperature, electrical conductivity, and pH. Chemical analyses include alkalinity; dissolved organic carbon (DOC); inorganic and total dissolved nutrients (NH4, PO4, NO3,... more
Thermokarst
Title Abstract
Physical site characteristics for the ARCSS/TK stream dissolved organic carbon biodegradability (2011) data set.
The (ARCSSTK) did extensive research during 2009-2011 field seasons in Arctic Alaska. The objective of this data set was to measure the quantity and biodegradability of DOC from headwater streams and rivers across three geographic regions and across four natural ‘treatments’ (reference; thermokarst-; burned-, and thermokarst + burned-impacted streams) to evaluate which factors most strongly influence DOC quantity and biodegradablity at a watershed scale. This table provides physical site... more
