Soil Moisture and Temperature Data at Trail Valley Creek, NWT, Canada 2016


This data set contains quality controlled soil temperature and volumetric liquid water content measurements from an installation near Trail Valley Creek (TVC) research station in the Northwest Territories, operated by Wilfried Laurier University. The station is located east of the Mackenzie Delta and 45 km north of Inuvik. The data set provides long-term observations on the thermal and hydrological state of the active layer at a hummocky tundra site within the continuous permafrost zone. The station consists of a soil depth-profile with four sensor sets, as well as distributed sensors in the surface soil and one sensor installed in the air to measure the snow pack properties in winter.

Locations are: (a) next to horizontal profile at the hummock, (b) midway between hummock and shrub, and (c) in shrub water pathway.
