Environmental Data from the Colville River Delta, Alaska

December 14, 2021

This data release contains two tables with information on seasonal values for temperature, wind, and snow cover collected at the Colville River Delta, Alaska, 2011-2018. Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey used an on-site weather station to automatically record the temperature and speed and direction of the wind across the duration of their field season. Researchers also established permanent plots that they visited to record the percent cover of snow from their arrival at the site each spring until all snow had melted.
