Abstract:
This data set contains temperatures collected from boreholes on the North Slope of Alaska at 23 sites between 1977 and 2003. Most data fall into a date range of 1983-2003. The data consist of manually measured temperature profiles. PLEASE NOTE: These data and documentation files are presented as received from the Principal Investigator (PI) and have not undergone the normal ADCC quality control procedures. This data set will not receive routine NSIDC User Services support until ADCC staff have completely prepared the data for publication. Until this disclaimer has been removed, users should send questions and comments about this data set to nsidc@nsidc.org. NSIDC will forward these inquiries to the PI for resolution.
