North Temperate Lakes LTER: Groundwater Levels 1984 - current

Abstract
Water levels in monitoring wells are measured several times throughout the year. The number of monitored wells has ranged over the study period from 19 to 44 wells. Currently, 37 wells are being monitored 4 - 5 times per year. The wells are scattered throughout the Trout Lake hydrological basin and the data are used to calibrate and test regional groundwater flow models. In addition (see related data set - Groundwater Chemistry), water chemistry is measured annually in a subset of 11 of these wells to characterize regional groundwater chemistry in the Trout Lake area. Sampling Frequency: varies - generally from 4 - 9 times a year Number of sites: 44
