West Siberian Lowland Peatland GIS Data Collection
Entry ID: ARCSS131

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This dataset contains the West Siberian Lowland (WSL) peatland GIS data collection. The collection covers the entire West Siberian lowland and was compiled from a wide array of data under the auspices of the NSF-funded “Sensitivity of the West Siberian Lowland to Past and Present Climate” project (Smith et al., 2000; Smith et al., 2004). Detailed physical characteristics of 9,691 individual ... View entire text
