Entry ID: GGD244

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This study is developing a GIS at multiple scales for the Kuparuk River Basin and other sites in Alaska. The project includes geobotanical sampling of 1 x 1 km grids at 100 m intervals for vegetation, soils, and active layer depth. Sites are:

U1 Barrow Grid (71 deg 20 min N, 156 deg 30 min W)
U3 Atkasook Grid (70 deg. 27 min N, 157 deg 25 min W)
U5 West Dock Grid ... View entire text
