This observation aims to clarify the characteristics and processes of water accumulation and transfer and their relation with the energy cycle, in the atmosphere-land surface interface of cold environments from the seasonal to the inter-annual time scale in the Taiga watersheds. This data set presents half-hourly measurements of surface meteorological components together with subsurface observation. The data has been collected at larch forest tower site (32m height) in Yakutsk, Russia, since April 2000 (now in progress). This site has been operated within the framework of the Gewex Asia Monsoon Experiment in Siberia (GAME-Siberia) project and now is oerated by IORGC.
