Abstract: This data set provides environmental, soil, and vegetation data collected in July and August 1951 from 80 study plots in the Nome River Valley about 10 miles northeast of Nome, Alaska on the Seward Peninsula. Data includes the baseline plot information for vegetation, soils, and site factors for the study plots subjectively located in plant communities that were found to occur in 5 broad habitat types across the glaciated landscape. Specific attributes include: dominant vegetation species and cover, and soil characteristics, moisture, and organic matter. This product brings together for easy reference all the available information collected from the plots that has been used for the classification, mapping and analysis of geo-botanical factors in the Nome River Valley and across Alaska.
