Study area included sites burned in 2014 and 2015 in the southeastern portion of the Northwest Territories and northern Alberta of Canada. The study area includes all 2014 and 2015 fires within a radius of approximately 300 km from Great Slave Lake.
Pre- and post-fire Landsat images were used to classify burn severity of soil organic matter across portions of arctic Canada.
Daily mean shortwave blue sky albedo for February 28, 2000. Blue sky refers to albedo calculated under real-world conditions with a combination of both diffuse and direct lighting based on atmospheric and view-geometry conditions.
Daily “blue sky” shortwave albedo data were derived from the MODIS bi-directional reflectance distribution function.
Annual expansion of a thaw slump on the East Fork Chandalar River near the community of Venetie, Alaska, from 2008 through 2017. The erosion time series was created by digitizing data from ESRI base maps and Landsat 5, 7, and 8 images. The eroded area appears to be growing steadily, mostly to the east, with apparent limitation on growth to the north and south.
