Abstract: This data set contains active layer data collected for the Toolik Snowfence Experiment from 1994 to 2002. The Toolik Snowfence Experiment (part of the International Tundra Experiment network) examines the short- and long-term effects of increased snow depth (shortened growing season) and increased summer temperature on arctic tundra vegetation. The goal of this project is to assess potential ... View entire text
