conductivity

PIE LTER year 2015, 15 minute measurements of conductivity, water temperature in a small headwater stream draining a mainly wetland catchment (49% wetlands/swamp + 36% forest), Bear Br., draining Cedar Swamp, Reading, MA.

Abstract: 

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.

Methods: 

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.

FLAGS:
1 -- Datalogger not deployed
2 -- Datalogger malfunction

Maintenance:
