Wetlands Water Chemistry in the KBS Region

Water chemistry measurements were made from wetland surface water samples collected since 1996 by Stephen Hamilton’s lab at KBS. Measurements include major solutes, nutrients, pH, dissolved oxygen, and conductance. Most of the water samples were collected in non-urban regions of Kalamazoo, Barry, and Allegan counties, within the Kalamazoo River watershed or just north of it in southern Barry County. Some were one-time samplings whereas many sites were sampled multiple times, most often in the Spring (May) and Fall (October). GPS coordinates are available for many of the sites.

This datatable is part of the Water Chemistry in Streams, Lakes Wetlands and Groundwater near the KBS LTER dataset. Water chemistry is measured in diverse surface waters and in two water supply wells in the vicinity of the KBS LTER. This dataset includes sites sampled over time (streams, wells, some wetlands) as well as wetland sites sampled once or a few times. A separate dataset includes soil water chemistry sampled from the LTER treatments.
