Summary
Abstract: LTER - Long-Term Ecological Research Program/Toolik Lake, Arctic Tundra, Alaska
(ARC)

LTER/ARC003 [Summary adapted from the LTER Core Data Set Catalog]:

Climatic/meteorological data for the Toolik Lake area were collected
using an automated weather station with a datalogger. Parameters
measured include lake water depth, temperature and light penetration
to 2 m, wind speed and direction, precipitation, relative humidity,
barometric pressure, pan evaporation (during non-frozen periods), air
temperature, solar radiation, and soil temperature. Snow depth is
collected by another group.
