Computed Thaw Depth Data, Kuparuk Basin, Alaska, 1995
Entry ID: ARCSS035

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Cumulative thawing degree-day data were computed from data collected
during the 1995 field season at Kuparuk Basin, Alaska. The air
temperatures (thawing degree-day sums) from the 10 ARCSS/LAII 1-km x
1-km Flux Study Plots (transect from Prudhoe Bay to Toolik Lake) were
interpolated onto the Kuparuk DEM. The data files are matrices at
weekly intervals beginning with July 10 and ending August 6. There are
also matrices available for "end of season," taken as August 11, the
last day of simultaneously collected temperature and probing records.
