Evidence and Implications of Recent Climate Change in Northern Alaska and Other Arctic Regions
The Arctic climate is changing. Permafrost is warming, hydrological processes are changing and biological and social systems are also evolving in response to these changing conditions. Knowing howExpand

A scaling approach for quantifying the net CO2 flux of the Kuparuk River Basin, Alaska
Summary Net CO2 flux measurements conducted during the summer and winter of 1994–96 were scaled in space and time to provide estimates of net CO2 exchange during the 1995–96 (9 May 1995–8 MayExpand

Physiological models for scaling plot measurements of CO2 flux across an arctic tundra landscape.
Regional estimates of arctic ecosystem CO2 exchange are required because of the large soil carbon stocks located in arctic regions, the potentially large global-scale feedbacks associated withExpand

Variability of the Seasonally Integrated Normalized Difference Vegetation Index Across the North Slope of Alaska in the 1990s
The interannual variability and trend of above-ground photosynthetic activity of Arctic tundra vegetation in the 1990s is examined for the north slope region of Alaska, based on the seasonallyExpand

Spatial distribution of near surface soil moisture and its relationship to microtopography in the Alaskan Arctic coastal plain
The Arctic coastal plain of Alaska is characterized by marked heterogeneity in microtopography and above ground vegetation productivity at a variety of scales. This heterogeneity may be expected toExpand
