Patterned-Ground 10 x 10 m Grids - Sagwon

The Sagwon patterned-ground grids are located at the northern edge of the rolling foothills, at the boundary with the flatter coastal plain. This is also the boundary between Subzones E and D, and between the acidic tundra to the south and the nonacidic tundra to the north. There are three 10 x 10 m grids, one with acidic tussock-sedge, erect dwarf-shrub, moss vegetation (MAT), and two grids in the nonacidic nontussock-sedge, prostrate dwarf-shrub, moss tundra (MNT). The two MNT grids are similar.
