Autochamber CO2 and CH4 Flux Data for the SPRUCE Experimental Plots
This data set reports measurements of CO2 and CH4 fluxes and d13C-CO2 and d13C-CH4 values associated with each flux measurement for the SPRUCE experimental study plots located in the S1-Bog. Flux measurements started in 2014 and are continuing.

SPRUCE S1 Bog and SPRUCE Experiment Location Survey Results, 2015
This data set provides a record of the horizontal and vertical survey results of SPRUCE experimental infrastructure and measurement locations on the S1-Bog on the Marcell Experimental Forest and the SPRUCE experimental site within the S1-Bog.
Data for Public Download.
EM123_combined data through December 10, 2015 have been uploaded.
This data set reports selected ambient environmental monitoring data from the S1bog. There are three monitoring sites located in the bog: Stations 1 and 2 are co-located at the southern end of the bog and Station 3 is located north central and adjacent to an existing U.S. Forest Service monitoring well.

Metagenomic analyses revealed that genes encoding laccases and dioxygenases, involved in aromatic compound degradation, declined in relative abundance with depth, while the relative abundance of genes encoding metabolism of amino sugars and all four saccharide groups increased with depth in parallel with a 50% reduction in carbohydrate content.
