Title: Blodgett Forest CA Warming Experiment Soil Gas Well Data March 2014 to June 2017

Abstract

These are soil gas data from the whole soil profile warming experiment at the University of California Blodgett Forest Research Station, in the Sierra Nevada foothills near Georgetown, CA at 1370 m above sea level. Mean annual precipitation is 1774 mm with most of it occurring from November through April and mean annual temperature is about 12.5°C . The experiment is in a thinned 80-year-old stand of mixed conifers including ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana), incense cedar (Calodefrus decurrens), white fir (Abies concolor), and douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). The soils are Holland series: fine-loamy, mixed, superactive, mesic Ultic Haploxeralfs of granitic origin with thick, >5 cm O horizons, minimal carbonates , and a pH that ranges from 5.6 to 6.5. The warming experiment warms the top meter of the soil profile to +4°C above ambient. These data include depth-resolved measurements of CO2 concentrations, 13CO2, apparent respiration quotients, soil temperature, and soil moisture (VWC). These data can be used to model CO2 production rates across the soil profile or to track how the sources and processes contributing to soil respiration change seasonally and with warming.
