Information associated with disturbance in ecology research
Year 2015, continuous measurements, every 15 minutes were made of conductivity, water temperature in Bear Brook in Reading, MA, a small headwater stream draining Cedar Swamp, a mainly wetland catchment (49% wetlands and swamp + 36% forest) in the Ipswich River watershed.
Conductivity and water temperature were measured using a HOBO datalogger inside a perforated PVC pipe along the south bank of the stream channel.
Specific conductance was calculated using a conductivity assistant in the HOBOware software.
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
The datalogger failed December 5, 2014 and a replacement logger was not deployed until April 6, 2015.
1 -- Datalogger not deployed
2 -- Datalogger malfunction
