Year-round Data from Alaskan Flux Towers

Three tower sites at Barrow, Alaska

Three tower sites at Barrow, Alaska: Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO) tower, Biocomplexity Experiment, South (BES) tower, and the Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory (CMDL) tower.

ABoVE: CO2 and CH4 Fluxes and Meteorology at Flux Tower Sites, Alaska, 2015-2017

This dataset provides CO2 and CH4 fluxes and meteorological parameters from five eddy covariance (EC) tower sites located at Barrow (three sites), Atqasuk (ATQ) and Ivotuk (IVO), Alaska. These locations form a 300-km north-south transect across Alaska's North Slope. Flux measurements include CO2, CH4, and H2O fluxes plus sensible and latent heat fluxes. Meteorological data include air temperature, wind speed, rain, soil temperature, PAR, radiation, soil water content, RH, ground heat fluxes, and air pressure. All data are reported at half-hourly intervals and cover the period 2015-01-01 to 2017-03-09.
