Soil radiocarbon data from one moist acidic tussock tundra and one erect shrub tundra (Betula glandulosa) site in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range near Toolik Field Station, AK, USA. Data covers the active layer. The tussock site is located on Itkillik I glacial deposits. The shrub site is a palsa within a riparian area, and likely underwent a relatively recent shift in vegetation cover from wet sedge to shrub. (The soil profile is made up of two different soil types within the active layer).
