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 Remote Sensing
Title Abstract
Inventory and description of thermokarst features observed along the Umiat Corridor in July 2009.
Using a combination of aerial imagery and ~1m resolution airborne lidar (collected July, 2009), we use manual visual inspection of the two datasets to identify point locations of over 7000 thermal erosion features (thermokarst) of varying maturity. For each feature we report its x,y position, the facing direction of the feature, the local topographic setting, the geologic unit it occurs on, the relative age of the feature and the specific type of thermal erosion feature.
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.
Thermokarst Soil
Title Abstract
Ground temperature at and near I-Minus-2 thermokarst sites around Toolik Lake Field Station, Alaska, Summer 2009-Summer 2012
Ground temperatures were measured hourly at ~20-50cm intervals below the ground surface inside and adjacent to thermokarst features in the region around Toolik Field Station. Ground temperatures were measured using Hobo thermistors. Temperatures at 0 and 20cm depths were measured directly in the ground whereas 40cm and deeper measurements were logged from dry wells installed in summer 2009. IM2_GT01dot06_temp is located inside of the I-Minus-2 Gulley thermokarst, downslope.
Meteorological data near thermokarst sites around Toolik Lake Field Station, Summer 2009-Summer 2012
GroMeteorological parameters were measured hourly adjacent to thermokarst features in the region around Toolik Field Station. Pressure, rainfall, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, air temperature and relative humidity were all measured at 1-3m above the ground surface with an Onset U30 weather station connected to all sensors.
