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

WAT-UNH-IP-catchments.xls

 

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

 

YEAR: 2001-2002

 

PI: Charles Vorosmarty

 

OTHERS: Wilfred Wollheim, Brian Pellerin

 

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DATA FILE: Nutrient data was collected monthly between April 2001 and December 2002 in collaboration with volunteers from the Ipswich R. watershed association. All samples were collected on the same day. Samples were analysed for NO3, NO2, NH4, PO4, and Si at UNH using Lachat methods. Headwater stream sites included a range of land uses in the contributing area. Samples were generally collected on the last Sunday of the month. In the XL file, each date has its own worksheet.

 

KEYWORDS: ammonium, dissolved, nitrate, nitrogen, nutrient, phosphate, phosphorus, silicate

 

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
