Information associated with inorganic nutrient research
Porewater nutrient concentration data [SRP, NH4+, S-2, Cl-] from several sites along the Rowley and Parker Rivers, MA and Wells NEER, ME.
Porewater is sampled monthly from May through November and bi-monthly from December though April using diffusion samplers. Samples are retrieved from triplicate poles at depths of 10, 25, 50, 75, and 100 cm. Soluble reactive phosphorus, NH4, S2, and chloride concentrations are measured in each sample according to standard laboratory protocols (SRP and NH4 – Strickland and Parson (1972); S2 – Otte and Morris (1994)).
