Methods:Water samples were taken weekly from lake N-1. at depths 0, 1, 3, 5, 8,and 12 meters. .Nutrients were analyzed using batch methods. SRP was measured using a non-extractive molybdate method (Strickland and Parsons 1969 and Wetzel and Likens 1979). Ammonia was measured by the phenate method (Wetzel and Likens 1979) and Nitrate/Nitrite using the cadmium reduction method.


Water samples were taken weekly from Toolik lake. The sampling depths were 0, 1, 3, 5, 8,12,and 16
meters. Nutrients were analyzed using batch methods. SRP was measured using a non-extractive
molybdate method (Strickland and Parsons 1969 and Wetzel and Likens 1979). Ammonia was measured
by the phenate method (Wetzel and Likens 1979) and Nitrate/Nitrite using the cadmium reduction method.

Water samples were taken weekly from both sides of lake N-2. The sampling depths for the Control side
were 0, 1, 3, 5, and 6 meters and the Treatment side were 0, 1, 3, 5, and 7 meters. Nutrients were analyzed
using batch methods. SRP was measured using a non-extractive molybdate method (Strickland and Parsons
1969 and Wetzel and Likens 1979). Ammonia was measured by the phenate method (Wetzel and Likens
1979) and Nitrate/Nitrite using the cadmium reduction method.


Water samples collected at designated sites and depths in the lakes were analyzed on the Technicon Autoanalyzer II using Technicon methods. In addition to the Standard series run at the beginning and end of each analysis 4 standards and a blank were run with each tray of samples.

Notes: These were all samples that were run by Gretchen Gettel throughout the summer
Particulate Phosphorus, nitrogen and carbon samples were collected on a pre-combusted 47 mm
Gelman AE filter and stored frozen until processing, Filters were then split in half and particulate
phosphorus was determined using methods of Stainton et al., (1974).

Variable Name Variable Description Data Type Units DateTime Format Code Information Missing Value Code
SortChem_# A unique number assigned to each sample collected at a specific site at a specific date and time. The year that the sample was collected is followed by a dash and then a sequential number.
