Title: SPRUCE Precipitation Chemistry and Bulk Atmospheric Deposition Beginning in 2013

Abstract

This data set reports the chemistry of precipitation water that was collected at the SPRUCE site located in the S1 bog and calculated values of bulk atmospheric deposition of solutes in precipitation. Sample collection and analyses started during December of 2013 and will continue for the duration of the experiment. Precipitation samples were collected year round on an event-basis from up to three individual collectors. Samples were either composited or individually analyzed, depending on the total volume of water available relative to the amount needed to complete all laboratory analyses. Funnel/bottle collectors were used to collect rainfall and buckets were used to collect snowfall and mixed precipitation. Samples were analyzed for pH, specific conductivity, nutrient concentrations (ammonium, nitrate, soluble reactive phosphorus, total nitrogen), cation concentrations (calcium, magnesium), anion concentrations (chloride, sulfate), total organic carbon concentrations, and natural-abundance stable isotopes of water (δ18O-H2O and δD-H2O). Bulk deposition was calculated by multiplying rainfall amount by solute concentration for ammonium, nitrate, soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP), total nitrogen, calcium, magnesium, chloride, sulfate, and total organic carbon. All measurements were made at the 8.1-ha S1 bog forest site in northern Minnesota, 40 km north of Grand Rapids, in the USDA Forest Service Marcell Experimental Forestmore » (MEF).« less
