Toolik Lake 1-km Grid

The Toolik Lake grid map focuses on the 1.2-km2 research grid on the south side of Toolik Lake. This area is one of the principal intensive research areas at the Toolik Lake Field Station. It includes many experimental research sites where long-term observations and experiments are being conducted, including the greenhouse and snow-fence experiments. The grid was constructed in 1989 to provide geographic referencing for experimental plots and to provide a sampling scheme for periodic measurements of snow, active layer and plant communities. Ancillary data include GIS locations of the 100-m spaced survey points and of the four washers defining the 1x1-m vegetation plots at these points.
