Franklin Bluffs Patterned-Ground 10 x 10 m Grids
The Franklin Bluffs biocomplexity grids are located in Subzone D, on the coastal plain of the Alaska North Slope, just west of the Sagavanirktok River. There are three 10 x 10 m grids: one near the rim of an abandoned river terrace (dry), one on the same terrace, but further back from the edge and a little lower in elevation (mesic), and one on the lower abandoned river terrace below the first two (wet). All three have a complex of vegetation types created by non-sorted circles, with sparser vegetation in the circles and more continuous vegetation between the circles.
