Terrain and Vegetation of Imnavait Creek, AK: Classification and Mapping
Entry ID: ARCSS112

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Investigators classified typical and characterisic vegetation communities in an area in northern Alaska using Braun-Blanquet sorted table analysis, and mapped the communities using integrated geobotanical mapping procedures in a Geographic Information System (GIS). The vegetation classification is presented in a final sorted table, and major terrain units, vegetation, and surface forms are described. Also included is a summary of comparable vegetation types from other relevant studies and an areal analysis of the geobotanical maps of the study area. The study area is the Department of Energy R4D research site and is located near Imnavait Creek, AK. Data are distributed in PDF file format.
