Title Abstract
Anaktuvuk River fire scar thaw depth measurements during the 2008 to 2014 growing season
The Anaktuvuk River Fire occurred in 2007 on the North Slope of Alaska. In 2008, three eddy covariance towers were established at sites represent ing unburned tundra, moderately burned tundra, and severely burned tundra. Several times during the 2008-2014 growing seasons, thaw depth was measured at approximately 70 points near each of these towers . Data presented here are the individual measurements for each site and date.

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

Thermokarst Streams
Title Abstract
ARCSS/TK stream dissolved organic carbon biodegradability (2011).
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.
Landscape Interactions Watershed Thaw Survey
Title Abstract
Tussock Watershed Thaw Depth Survey Summary for 1990 to present, Arctic LTER, Toolik Research Station, Alaska.
Starting in 1990 thaw depth has been measured in a small watershed of tussock tundra every July 2nd and August 11th. The UTM stake grid (stakes are in a grid at every 100 meters) was used to locate the points . All measured depths are in cm. Measurements are made within a 20 cm radius of each location point. All the measurements are then averaged into a single value for the day.

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
