Hamilton, S. K. 2020. Bromide Addition to Test for Vertical Percolation and Plant Uptake. Kellogg Biological Station Long-term Ecological Research Special Publication. Zenodo, http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4279845..
In 2019 we conducted a bromide tracer addition at the KBS LTER site to determine whether water infiltrating at the surface percolated vertically downward through the root zone. We wanted to verify whether suction lysimeters could be deployed beneath small subplots in our future LTER rainout shelter experiments. This experiment has also been called the “lysimeter spacing test.” Subsequently, we sampled grass that grew after the addition to see whether plants take up added bromide from the soil solution.
