Here we report biogeochemical data from two sites in the Red Butte Creek watershed, Todd's Meadow in Red Butte Canyon, and Sage Pt. lawn on the U of Utah Canyon. GPS coordinates (WGS 84) for these sites are: 40.789, -111.796462 and 40.763, -111.830, respectively. Data were collected from 2013 - 14 in the context of a snow manipulation at both sites. See the attached document for details. Data include: surface soil moisture, temperature, and oxygen mixing ratios, extractable nitrogen (N) pools, total soil N, N in soil lysimeters, HCl-extractable soil iron, nitrate isotope composition, soil potential denitrification rates. A manuscript describing methods in detail is included.
