National Petroleum Reserve Alaska (NPR-A) Gauging Stations

Measured active layer at 61 plots, 1999-2005 (every 3 years), and 46 of those were monitored through 2011. Summer precipitation values at the field sites were collected with tipping bucket gages. A summary table of gages used are listed below. All units funnel precipitation from an orifice into a bucket mechanism that tips when filled to a calibrated level. Each tip is counted by a datalogger and recorded at either 15 minute or hourly intervals.
