Abstract: 

Collections of airborne sand are obtained at the 15 NPP sites and the Geomet site. The collections are taken using BSNE collectors. The collectors are turned into the wind with wind vanes. The amount of material collected corresponds to the horizontal flux at the height of the collector and the opening area of the collector and the duration of the sampling time. The five heights of the BSNE collectors above the soil surface are 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 centimeters for every location where samples are taken. The hypothesis of the experiment is that the vertical flux of the particles smaller than 10 micrometers is a constant ratio of the horizontal sand flux. The objectives of the experiment are to find patterns of sand flux rates as affected by soil and vegetation.

    Days on which data could not be obtained (due to equipment failure, user error, and/or
     other reasons) are flagged as missing within this dataset.  As of 31 December 2008 they
     comprised 1,270 of the total 291,465 records, which is less than 0.44% of the data set.

Study Number: 425

Project ID: 

210425000

Abstract: 

The principal purpose is to provide daily precipitation at specific sites to assist the study of vegetation response over time.

Estimated daily precipitation is calculated for each of 15 aboveground net primary productivity (ANPP) sites located in the 5 dominant vegetation zones on the Jornada Basin. The 15 sites were formally established in 1989 as LTER Study 268, but these rainfall estimates begin in 1980 using the closest rain gauge that provides a minimum resolution of daily precipitation data.

Abstract: 

Surface evaporation is measured weekly to twice weekly using an evaporation pan compatible with standard National Weather Service evaporation measurements.

Measurements are made twice per week during hot periods because of high evaporation rate. The following data is collected: number of days between measurements, beginning and ending measurement period, current, minimum, and maximum water temperature; initial water level; final water level; rainfall since last evaporation measurement, and calculated evaporation (inches).

Abstract: 

The objective of this long-term project is to measure the precipitation across the entire Jornada Experimental Range.

This is achieved by using a network of standard-can rain gages to continually collect the precipitation as it occurs. The collected precipitation is then measured monthly and the results are recorded on a data sheet which is later entered into a spreadsheet.

Abstract: 

This ongoing dataset contains monthly precipitation measurements from a network of standard can rain gauges at the Jornada Experimental Range in Dona Ana County, New Mexico, USA. Precipitation physically collects within gauges during the month and is manually measured with a graduated cylinder at the end of each month. This network is maintained by USDA Agicultural Research Service personnel.

This dataset includes 39 different locations but only 29 of them are currently sampled. Other precipitation data exist for this area, including event-based tipping bucket data with timestamps, but do not go as far back in time as this dataset.
