Description

A summary of climatic data during the 1968-71 growing seasons is presented for the subarctic Bonanza Creek Experimental Forest located near Fairbanks, Alaska. Data were obtained from three weather station sites at elevations of 1,650, 1,150, and 550 feet from May until September each year. Data are for relative humidity, rainfall, and maximum, minimum, and mean temperatures. Analyses indicate that Fairbanks mean monthly temperatures were higher than those at Nenana or at the Bonanza Creek Experimental Forest.
