Title Lichen Diameters
Downloaded 7 times
Description Raw Rhizocarpon sp. lichen diameters from soil deflation patches in West Greenland. We measured all yellow-green Rhizocarpon sp. without identifying to the species level. Lichen diameter measurements were collected along transects perpendicular to the active margin of the erosional landform. We measured the long axis of the lichens using digital calipers.

Title Deflation Patch Characteristics
Downloaded 6 times
Description Landscape position data for soil deflation landforms in West Greenland. Field measurements include scarp length, scarp height, and patch size. Elevation, aspect, slope, and distance to the Greenland Ice Sheet were calculated with imagery acquired from the Polar Geospatial Center. We calculated the patch expansion rate using the lichenometry dataset also available in this data package.
