Abstract: 

Dry atmospheric fallout (dryfall) is collected monthly using an Aerochem Metrics wetfall/dryfall collector located at the LTER weather station. Each sample is analyzed for NO3, NH4, Cl, SO4, Ca, Mg, Na, K, Total N, & Total P.

Abstract: 

Atmospheric deposition as found in dryfall (dust) and wetfall precipitation has been collected and analyzed since 1983 using an Aerochem Metrics wetfall/dryfall collector located at the Jornada LTE

R weather station.

Wetfall occurring as precipitation is collected after each event with a sample size large enough to analyze. Dryfall is collected monthly. Each sample is analyzed for NO3, NH4, Cl, SO4, Ca, Mg,Na, K, Total N, & Total P. Inclusion of Dissolved Organic Nitrogen began with 1998 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: 

Hourly summary values of averages of readings of the following parameters are made which are based on data recorded on a Campbell CR10(X) data logger: maximum, minimum, and average air temperature; maximum and minimum relative humidity; total precipitation; average wind speed; maximum wind speed; average wind direction; total incoming solar radiation; average soil temperature at 5cm and 20cm; m

ean dew temperature. From 1983 - 5 June 1991, readings on which hourly averages are based were made at 12 second intervals. From 6 June 1991 to present, readings on which hourly averages are based are made at 10 second intervals.

Abstract: 

A 4" diameter cylindric graduated rain gage (11" x 0.01" capacity) is mounted on a 4x4 inch diameter redwood post or on a wooden exclosure post next to gate at or near the 15 LTER-II NPP sites. Collection is made monthly on the day that monthly soil water content measurements are made to correlate precipitation input with belowground water content.

Data is collected primarily from graduated rain gauges. However, when missing data would result otherwise, amounts from the closest rain gauge are used in order to maintain as complete a data set as possible for that site. The rain gauge used is identified with each rainfall record. Other types that may be used are the Standard Can Gauge (DSRG or dipstick rain gauge), Belfort Weigh Bucket Rain Gauge (WBRG), and Qualimetrics Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge (TBRG).
