Lake Mendota Microbial Observatory Temperature, Dissolved Oxygen, pH, and conductivity data, 2006-present.

Abstract

The Lake Mendota Microbial Observatory collects routine water physical and chemical
measurements alongside their microbial samples. This dataset includes measurements of water
temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, and conductivity collected at the central Deep Hole,
collocated with a weather buoy (43°05'58.2"N 89°24'16.2"W). All measurements were collected
with handheld probes. Data from 2006-2014 was compiled from multiple sources and includes only
water temperature and dissolved oxygen. Data from 2014-2019 is from the same probe, a YSI Pro
Plus instrument, and also includes pH and specific conductance. Routine microbial observatory
sampling continues into the present.<br/>
