Summary
Abstract: This data report is a summary of environmental, soil, and vegetation information collected from 23 study plots at the Department of Energy R4D research site, located near Imnavait Creek in northern Alaska. Data include site factors, soil classification, description, and physical and chemical properties, and plant species cover. Study plots characterize two typical hillslopes of the Imnavait Creek Watershed. An assessment for photointerpreting vegetation signatures based on data findings is provided. Data are distributed in PDF file format.
