DATA FILE: Data file is available as an Excel file (version 2000).

WAT-MBL-IP-catchments.xls

 

DOCUMENTATION FILE: WAT-MBL-IP-catchments.doc

 

YEAR: 2000-2002

 

PI: Chuck Hopkinson

 

OTHERS: Ed Rastetter, Joe Vallino, Michael Williams, Solange Filoso, Luc Claessens, Jeff Evans, Wilfred Wollheim

 

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DATA FILE: Nutrient data was collected 6 times between November 1999 and April 2002 by MBL All samples were collected over a two day period. Samples were analysed for NO3, NO2, NH4, PO4, Cl, SO4, and K at MBL. Headwater stream sites included a range of land uses in the contributing area. This file duplicates data in the file WAT-IP-catchments.xls in order to standardize station ID among different sample periods, and is consistent with the ID's in WAT-UNH-IP-catchments.xls. To cross reference between these two data files see "Lab_ID's" for April 2000 in the data file "WAT-IP-catchments.xls".

 

KEYWORDS: ammonium, calcium, carbon, chloride, dissolved, nitrate, nitrogen, nutrient, organic, phosphate, phosphorus, potassium, sulfate, total

 

SITE TYPE: Watershed

 

RESEARCH LOCATION: x and y coordinates (meters) in MA State Plane NAD83. Sites were georeferenced to a gridded river network with 120m grid sizes. X and Y coordinates reflect slight shifts to ensure proper placement on the digital river network. Contributing area is listed in km2
