Lake Mendota Phosphorus Entrainment at North Temperate Lakes LTER 2005

Abstract

This dataset contains total (TP) and soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP) data collected in Lake Mendota during the summer of 2005 between 6/28/2005 and 10/14/2005 as well as high-resolution temperature data for that same time period . The phosphorus data were taken at five different locations where buoys were deployed. The buoys were deployed with HOBO temperature data loggers attached at 2 - 4 m intervals. Similarly the phosphorus samples were collected at 2 - 4 m intervals throughout the water column. The position of the five buoys changed a few times during the summer in an effort to monitor circulation patterns due to different wind directions and speeds. Manuscript using this dataset: Kamarainen, A.M., H. Yuan, C. Wu, S.R. Carpenter. 2009. One-dimensional and three-dimensional approaches converge on similar estimates of phosphorus entrainment in Lake Mendota. Limnology and Oceanography Methods 7:553-567 Sampling frequency: Water temperature: generally 1 min; some at 5 min. TP and SRP: approximately at 2 weeks intervals Number of sites: 12
