Title: SPRUCE S1 Bog Porewater, Groundwater, and Stream Chemistry Data: 2011-2013

Abstract

This data set reports the chemistry of S1 bog porewater, outlet stream water, and groundwater from upland wells from 2011 through 2013. These data provide information for studies of the biogeochemical status of the bog and surrounding groundwater aquifer. Porewater samples were collected from one nest of 6 piezometers installed in a hollow in the south end of the S1 bog to characterize solute chemistry depth profiles. Peat porewater was collected from piezometers that opened at 0, 0.3, 0.5, 1, 2, and 3 m depths below hollow surfaces. Samples were collected weekly (2011) or monthly (2012 & 2013) when the samplers were not frozen (typically June – November). Stream water was sampled weekly (2011-2013) from the outlet of the S1 bog (located on the southern edge of the bog). Four groundwater wells located in the uplands of the S1 watershed were sampled monthly in 2013. Bog water level data are also reported for the S1 bog. Water samples were analyzed for pH, specific conductivity, nutrient concentrations (ammonium, nitrate, soluble reactive phosphorus, total nitrogen, total phosphorus), cation concentrations (calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, aluminum, iron, manganese, silicon, strontium), anion concentrations (chloride, sulfate), and total organic carbon concentrations. The experimental work is tomore » be conducted in a Picea mariana [black spruce] – Sphagnum spp. bog forest in northern Minnesota, 40 km north of Grand Rapids, in the USDA Forest Service Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF).« less
