Index of LTER lakes Physical and Chemical data files

Physics and Chemistry:

One file for each lake each year containing depth profiles of all physical and chemical data taken for each lake in a year. The variables measured are temperature, pH, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen, light penetration and conductivity. Starting in 2004 there is a single yearly file for all lakes sampled.

  • 2009BurnSedTrp - We measured the flux of bulk material and major macronutrients (carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus) from the water column to the benthos in four separate lakes during the summer of 2009. The lakes were chosen to investigate the impacts of disturbance on lake sedimentation. Two of the lakes, Dimple and Perched, were within catchments that were burned by the 2007 Anaktuvuk River wildfire. Two of the lakes, NE-14 and Perched, were receiving elevated sediment loads from thermokarst failures on their shorelines, and Toolik Lake was used as a reference lake. As such, the lakes were organized by disturbance regime: Dimple = fire only, Perched = fire + thermokarst, NE-14 = thermokarst only, and Toolik = undisturbed reference.
