> SPRUCE Environmental Monitoring Data: 2010-2011

This data set reports selected ambient environmental monitoring data from the S1 bog for the period June 2010 through October 2011. Measurements of the environmental conditions at these stations will serve as a pre-treatment baseline for experimental treatments and provide driver data for future modeling activities.

Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 2014, 80(11):3531. DOI: 10.1128/AEM.00206-14.

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.

> SPRUCE S1 Bog Peat Depth Determined by Push Probe and GPR: 2009-2010

This data set reports the thickness of peat for the S1 Bog measured directly with manual push probes on September 21 and 22, 2009, and measured by ground penetrating radar (GPR) across transects from January 26 to February 2, 2010 and June 2 to June 9, 2010. Also included are interpolated values of peat depth from both probe and GPR data for the S1 Bog at 1 meter square horizontal resolution.

> SPRUCE S1 Bog Vegetation Survey and Peat Depth Data: 2009

This data set reports the results of a field survey of the S1 Bog to characterize the vegetation and to determine peat depth. The survey was conducted on September 21 and 22, 2009.
