Council, 1999 THE SITES

University of Alaska Fairbanks

Artic Transitions in the Land Atmosphere System (ATLAS)


Site photos 1999

The five sites chosen for study during the 1999 field season at Council represent a transition of vegetation types from Tundra to White Spruce Forest. These sites feature a transition in the dominance of plant functional types that will allow us to evaluate the importance of ecosystem structure and function to land surface-atmosphere interactions in transitional arctic systems.
