Summary

This Data Release presents soil thermal properties of volumetric specific heat capacity and thermal conductivity for soil samples from six sites in interior Alaska USA. Volumetric specific heat capacity and thermal conductivity data were estimated using a dual needle heat pulse probe. Soil thermal property data were collected across the full spectrum of soil saturations from fully saturated to oven dry. These data are needed for numerical modeling of subsurface thermal conditions for modeling permafrost thaw and associated consequences for water availability in interior Alaska.
