Additional Data Sources

These are additional data repositories of Core BNZ LTER data.

National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP)

The program is a cooperative effort between many different groups, including federal, state, tribal and local governmental agencies, educational institutions, private companies, and non-governmental agenciesto monitor precipitation chemistry. The 'Poker Creek' site (ID: AK01) was established in 1992 at the BNZ research watershed and is operated by Bonanza Creek staff.

National Resources Conservation Service: Alaska Snow Survey Program (NRCS)

The NRCS Snow Survey Program provides mountain snowpack data and streamflow forecasts for the western United States. BNZ conducts monthly snow surveys at the 'BONANZA CREEK' (ID: 48P01) and 'CARIBOU CREEK' (ID: 47Q03) sites were data has been collected since 1968 and 1970 respectivly.

AErosol RObotic NETwork (AERONET)

The AERONET (AErosol RObotic NETwork) program is a federation of ground-based remote sensing aerosol networks. AERONET collaboration provides globally distributed observations of spectral aerosol optical depth (AOD), inversion products, and precipitable water in diverse aerosol regimes. The 'Bonanza_Creek' site is located on a platform within the LTER1 weather station.

Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM)

The Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) program is to observe the response of the active layer and near-surface permafrost to climate change over long (multi-decadal) time scales. The Bonanza Creek Long-Term Ecological Research Program collects annual thaw depth at the end of the growing season at three sites for the CALM project: Wickersham (U17), Bonanza Creek (U18) and Pearl Creek (U19).
UAF is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and educational institution.
