KBS LTER Survey Monument Coordinates — Research Context

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Locations of 2 LTER survey monuments that were set in 2006 by Jensen Land Surveying (Richland, MI.) using 2 survey grade Ashtec Promark 2 GPS units. These monuments are located near the LTER Weather Station and the LTER gas shed, both located on the LTER main site.

This datatable is part of the KBS LTER Global Positioning System Data dataset.

The KBS LTER uses submeter accuracy GPS to record many locations such as plot corners, gas flux chamber, leaf litter trap locations, soil water samplers (lysimeter), etc.
