Combined map of subsistence resource use areas of Interior Alaskan communities with (1) points marking harvest effort locations, (2) polygons indicating harvest effort areas, and (3) lines indicating linear harvesting activity.
Maps of the search and harvest areas used by residents of Interior Alaska are available.
AirMOSS radar swaths flown in 2014 and 2015 in Alaska. In situ soil moisture and temperature profile measurements were obtained at the CALM (Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring) and the UAF GIPL (Geophysical Institute Permafrost Laboratory, University of Alaska Fairbanks) sites and used to validate AirMOSS data products.
Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS) radar data from Alaska are used to derive estimates of active layer thickness. Data from flights in 2014 and 2015 are now available.
Estuaries classes used in the study: former river valley primary estuary, former glacier valley primary estuary, river delta primary estuary, tectonic structural primary estuary, coastal lagoon secondary estuary, and unclassified estuary.
Soil organic carbon (SOC) estimates and environmental data for US estuaries are available for the period 1972-2015.
A plot photo (#0656) taken at the largest study area 'Toolik' at elevation 765.7 m. The small white object was included in many of the photos as a color reference. The photographer's boots are also often visible, in this photo they are to the lower left of the white object.
A new ABoVE dataset offers hundreds of ground-based vegetation photos which may serve as a reference for studies of climate and vegetation change in the area.
Dr. Don McNeil and his students analyzing data in the classroom. The projected wall image on the left shows the result of a MODIS data subset using the ORNL DAAC's Global Subsets Tool. The projected wall image on the right shows thematic maps of daily land surface temperature increase in North and South America and Antarctica using a laterally rotated Mollweide Earth projection.
