Season to provide an annual estimate. Keller et al. (2010) measured strontium isotope ratios (87Sr86Sr), which decrease with depth in soils at the Arctic LTER, to estimate the increasing depth of water flow within the soil. Utilizing the point-frame system described by Walker (1996), Gould and Mercado-Diaz (in Shaver et al. 2014) monitored the response of plant communities to ambient climate in 155 permanent plots. Measurements were produced at 5- to 7-year intervals due to the fact 1989 in two 1 km2 grids setTable two Environmental and ecological variables measured more than the long-term at Toolik and Zackenberg web pages Website Toolik Web-site Climate Thaw depth Biology Kuparuk River Climate, physics Biology Climatic norms for river basin (1989010) and discharge and temperature (1972010) are in Bowden et al.

Information are out there at Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring ( The summer thaw depth progression from June 1 to September 7 at ZEROCALM-2, 1996005, is offered in Christiansen et al. (2008) Plant communities had been analyzed (1997, 2008) in relation to summer time temperature and spring snow cover. 5 replicate plots in eight plant communities were sampled (Schmidt et al. 2012). NDVI measures (Tagesson et al. 2012) gave gross primary production at the peak with the growing season from 1992 to 2008 Precipitation, temperature, and snow depth measured hourly (1996010). Abundance of 6 plant species, 6 taxa of arthropods, 4 species of birds, and 3 mammals measured weekly and seasonally (Mortensen et al. 2014). At 2 lakes, temperature, ice cover, and nutrients have been measured (1997005) as well as volume of phytoplankton and abundance of zooplankton (Christoffersen et al. 2008) Air temperature, precipitation, wind speed and path, and developing season dates for 1989010 are in Cherry et al.

Also shown will be the linear regressions for Barrow 1950014 (dashed dot line), Barrow 1996014 (short-dashed line), Toolik 1996014 (long-dashed line), and Zackenberg 1996014 (dotted line). Regression lines and coefficients are ordered from prime to bottom as Toolik, Zackenberg, Barrow (1996014), and Barrow (1950014). Only the Barrow 1950014 and Zackenberg 1996014 linear regressions are important (p \ 0.01). Information from Alaska Climate Study Ce.
