Warning: strtotime() [function.strtotime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

An Arctic Ecosystem: the Coastal Tundra at Barrow, Alaska

Library Holdings.

The coastal tundra at Barrow, Alaska. Several broad objectives guided the research design of the U.S.
Tundra Biome program from its inception: 1) to develop a predictive understanding of how the tundra system operates, particularly as exemplified by the wet coastal tundra of northern Alaska; 2) to obtain the necessary data base from a variety of cold-dominated ecosystems represented
in the United States so that their behavior could be modeled and simulated and the results compared with similar studies underway in other circumpolar countries; and 3) to bring basic environmental knowledge to bear on problems of degradation, maintenance, and restoration of the
temperature-sensitive and cold-dominated tundra and taiga ecosystems.
