Groundwater Chemistry near the KBS LTER

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Two water supply wells are sampled at the Pond Laboratory at Kellogg Biological Station. Sampling is done after thoroughly flushing the lines. There is no pre-treatment of the water from the Pond Lab Reservoir Well, but the Bush Gardens well does have an oxygenation tank upstream of the sampling point, which may cause some mineral precipitation and variably affects the samples. More information on these wells is available from Stephen Hamilton.

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.
