Comprehensive Soil Water Chemistry at the Kellogg Biological Station, Hickory Corners, MI (1999 to 2003)

posted on 2023-11-30, 10:23 authored by G Robertson

Soil water samples are collected every other week during the growing season from treatments 1-7 (replicates 2-4) and the successional and forest sites using Prenart soil water samplers (sometimes referred to as lysimeters). Three sampling stations are located in each treatment and are grouped in this analysis. In this dataset, the following chemical variables were measured from 1999-2005: Ca, Mg, Na, K, NO3, total alkalinity, Cl, SO4, NH4,PO4, DOC, specific conductance, total dissolved phosphorus and Si. See also the dataset entitled Soil Water Nitrate on the Main Cropping System Experiment which covers a longer time period. See the following reference for methods: Hamilton,S.K., A.L. Kurzman, C.Arango, L. Jin, and G.P. Robertson. 2007. Evidence for carbon sequestration by agricultural liming.
