Year 2012, continuous measurements, every 5 minutes during the first deployment and then 15 minutes for the remainder of the year, 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 suspended inside a perforated PVC pipe in the center of the stream channel.
Specific conductance was calculated using a conductivity assistant in the HOBOware software.
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
Datalogger was deployed on Novermber 30, 2012 and collected data at an interval of 5 minutes. The sampling interval was changed to 15 minutes on December 20, 2012.
1 -- Datalogger not deployed
2 -- Datalogger malfunction
