Climate and Productivity of Arctic Tundra

Arctic tudra MaxNDVI biweekly mean

Arctic biweekly NDVI (green bars) and trend (grey bars) for full tundra for 1999-2015. Biweekly trends statistically significant at the 95% level or greater are marked with an asterisk on the x-axis. From Figure 9 (c) Bhatt et al. (2017) (see dataset documentation).

ABoVE: Climate Drivers of Pan-Arctic Tundra Vegetation Productivity, 1982-2015

This dataset provides a summary of potential climate drivers of Arctic tundra vegetation productivity for the 1982-2015 growing seasons across the pan-arctic non-alpine tundra and the continental subdivisions of the North American and the Eurasian Arctic. Climate drivers include (1) maximum normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and time-integrated NDVI, (2) summer sea ice concentrations, (3) oceanic heat content, (4) land surface temperature, and (5) summer warmth index.

Research for the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) will link field-based, process-level studies with geospatial data products derived from airborne and satellite sensors, and data collection will occur in Alaska and western Canada during 2016-2021.
