Abstract

Continuous data is collected at 9 sites throughout New Hampshire. At each site data is collected every 15 minutes by the datalogger from a HOBO Stage logger (or site is paired with USGS site), Satlantic SUNA and YSI EXO2. Data is collected and transmitted to UNH by cell telemetry once a day where it is stored on the NH EPSCoR data server. The data that is collected from the SUNA are Nitrate in mg/L and is corrected by grab sample NO3 analyzed by IC. Data that is collected by the YSI are Stream Temperature, Specific Conductance, and fDOM in QSU. The fDOM is corrected by temperature, turbidity (not included), and absorbance.

This data set was used to analyze the high-frequency time series of stream solutes to characterize the timing and magnitude of nutrient and organic matter transport over event, seasonal, and annual timescales as well as to assess to whether nitrate (NO3-) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) transport are coupled in watersheds. Our dataset includes in situ observations spanning 2 – 4 years in 10 streams and rivers across New Hampshire, including observations of nearly 700 individual hydrologic events. These events are identified in the files.

Methods and findings are described in the associated WRR manuscript.
