Abstract

This report provides data collected by the climate monitoring
array of the U.S. Department of the Interior on Federal
lands in Arctic Alaska over the period August 1998 to July
2016; this array is part of the Global Terrestrial Network for
Permafrost (DOI/GTN-P). In addition to presenting data, this
report also describes monitoring, data collection, and qualitycontrol
methods. The array of 16 monitoring stations spans
lat 68.5°N. to 70.5°N. and long 142.5°W. to 161°W., an area
of approximately 150,000 square kilometers. Climate summaries
are presented along with quality-controlled data. Data
collection is ongoing and includes the following climate- and
permafrost-related variables: air temperature, wind speed and
direction, ground temperature, soil moisture, snow depth,
rainfall totals, up- and downwelling shortwave radiation, and
atmospheric pressure. These data were collected by the U.S.
Geological Survey in close collaboration with the Bureau of
Land Management and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
