    Many refer to the coastal plain of the Arctic Refuge — the very place where oil drilling is being planned — as the “American Serengeti.” A home for grizzly bears, wolves, musk oxen and a host of other species, the area is famous as the birthing ground for the enormous Porcupine caribou herd, which each spring floods across the refuge’s coastal plain in the tens of thousands, . The two ponds studied are located a few miles south of the northern tip of the coastal plain of Alaska, near Barrow, at about 17'N, 40'W. They are fairly typical of the innumerable ponds in the western portion of the coastal plain, where lakes alone comprise from about 25 % to as nmuch as 90%o of the surface area (Black and Barksdale.

These ponds were the site of the U.S. I.B.P. Tundra Biome aquatic studies, and their limnology is described in Stanley () and Hobbie (in press). Ponds used for this study are roughly 30 m square and do not exceed 35 cm depth.

They are frozen solid about 9 months of the year, and are thoroughly wind-mixed throughout the by: Tussock tundra is the dominant vegetation type but there are extensive areas of drier heath tundra on ridge tops and other well-drained sites as well as areas of river-bottom willow communities.
