Fluxes project at North Temperate Lakes LTER: Spatial Metabolism Study 2007

Abstract

Data from a lake spatial metabolism study by Matthew C. Van de Bogert for his Phd project, "Aquatic ecosystem carbon cycling: From individual lakes to the landscape."; The goal of this study was to capture the spatial heterogeneity of within-lake processes in effort to make robust estimates of daily metabolism metrics such as gross primary production (GPP), respiration (R), and net ecosystem production (NEP). In pursuing this goal, multiple sondes were placed at different locations and depths within two stratified Northern Temperate Lakes, Sparkling Lake (n=35 sondes) and Peter Lake (n=27 sondes), located in the Northern Highlands Lake District of Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, respectively.Dissolved oxygen and temperature measurements were made every 10 minutes over a 10 day period for each lake in July and August of 2007. Dissolved oxygen measurements were corrected for drift. In addition, conductivity, temperature compensated specific conductivity, pH, and oxidation reduction potential were measured by a subset of sondes in each lake. Two data tables list the spatial information regarding sonde placement in each lake, and a single data table lists information about the sondes (manufacturer, model, serial number etc.).

In addition, conductivity, temperature compensated specific conductivity, pH, and oxidation reduction potential were measured by a subset of sondes in each lake.
The characteristics of the sondes which were placed in Sparkling and Peter Lake in July to August 2007. Characteristics include the assigned numeric sonde identifier, the sonde model, oxygen sensor type, serial number, and the source which provided the sonde.
Spatial information regarding the placement of sondes on Sparkling and Peter lakes. Includes the numeric sonde identifier, latitude in decimal, longitude in decimal, and the depth at which the sonde was placed.
