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 Cart Creek, Newbury, MA, a small headwater stream draining a mainly forested catchment (55% forest + 19% wetland) in the Parker 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.
ADDITIONAL RESEARCH LOCATION COORDINATES:
In addition to the decimal degree coordinates given above, locations are also given here in Massachusetts State Plane coordinates. The stream is called Cart Creek and is located in Newbury MA. Some residential area is present (~10% of the basin). In addition, I-95 passes through the center of the catchment, resulting in roughtly 8% impervious surface area. Beaver have also been actively present since roughtly the mid-2000s and have created a number of impoundments spanning the length of the stream.
