A Subgrid Approach for Modeling Microtopography Effects on Overland Flow: Modeling Archive

Ahmad Jan, Ethan Coon & Scott Painter
This Modeling Archive is in support of an NGEE Arctic manuscript. A new subgrid model was implemented in the Advanced Terrestrial Simulator (ATS) to capture micro-topography effects on surface flow. A comparison of the fine-scale simulations on seven individual ice-wedge polygons and a cluster of polygons was made between the results of the subgrid model and no-subgrid model. Our finding confirms that the effects of small-scale spatial heterogeneities can be captured in the coarsened models....

Rooting depth distribution and nitrogen acquisition using 15N tracer, Barrow, Alaska, 2013

Colleen Iversen
Permafrost thaw and degradation may lead to altered thickness of the active soil layer and a changing distribution of plant-available nutrients throughout the soil, but little is known about the nutrient acquisition strategies of dominant tundra plant species. We conducted an 15N isotope tracer experiment to assess the vertical distribution of nutrient acquisition among three dominant species representing important plant functional types (PFTs) on the Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO) in Barrow, Alaska. We found that...
