Patterned-Ground 10 x 10 m Grids - West Dock

The West Dock biocomplexity grid is located near the water pumping facility at West Dock in the Prudhoe Bay oilfield, AK, within 1 km of the Beaufort Sea coast. There is one 10 x 10 m grid with nontussock sedge, prostrate dwarf-shrub, moss tundra on sandy soils.
