Runoff, Snow, Soil Moisture, Soil Temperature, and Water Level Measurements from BEO

This data set includes data from the Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO) as part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Biocomplexity Program. This involved increasing and decreasing the water table over large areas of tundra and observing the effects over the diverse microtopography of the region. It also includes measurements from the drained section (BEC) and flooded section (BEN) of Cake Eater Lake. The following dataset contains five ZIP files collected from runoff, snow, soil moisture, soil temperature, and water level measurements. The individual descriptions of each ZIP file are located in the readme file.
