SPRUCE Hollow Elevation Data for Experimental Plots Beginning in 2015

This data set provides hollow elevation data for the 17 SPRUCE experimental plots in the S1 bog on the Marcell Experimental Forest.

Hollows were selected for measurement by walking along each octagonal boardwalk segment in a plot and identifying where a hollow intersected the boardwalk. The vertical distance between the surface of the boardwalk (with a known elevation) and the surface of the hollow was measured and the absolute elevation (in meters amsl) of the hollow surface was calculated.

SPRUCE Ecological Forecasting System

EcoPAD is an interactive Model-Experiment (ModEx) system that assimilates various data streams into models in a rigorous way to constrain model parameters and system states, improve ecological prediction, and quantify associated uncertainty. The system provides feedback to experimenters on which data sets are needed to further improve model predictions and to modelers on which parts of a model need to be improved.

Specifically, the system will  (read more)

Check out the demo of Ecological Forecasting at SPRUCE (weekly) on the Ecological Platform for Assimilation of Data web page:  http://ecolab.cybercommons.org/ecopad_portal/#

Forecasting of GPP and ER are automated at weekly timescale. Mean trajectory and confidence interval were derived from 100 stochastic simulations. In each simulation, parameters were randomly chosen from previous (or default) Data Assimilation task. Forcing variables linked to SPRUCE ftp site where updated hourly.

SPRUCE Whole Ecosystems Warming (WEW) Environmental Data Beginning August 2015

This data set provides the environmental measurements collected during the implementation of operational methods to achieve both deep soil heating (0-3 m) and whole-ecosystem warming (WEW) appropriate to the scale of tall-stature, high-carbon, boreal forest peatlands. The methods were developed to allow scientists to provide a plausible set of ecosystem warming scenarios within which immediate and longer term (one decade) responses of organisms (microbes to trees) and ecosystem functions (carbon, water and nutrient cycles) could be measured.

SPRUCE Porewater Chemistry Data for Experimental Plots Beginning in 2013

This data set reports the chemistry of porewater in the SPRUCE plots located in the S1 bog. Sample collection and analyses started in August of 2013 and will continue for the duration of the experiment. Results will be added to this data set and released to the public periodically as quality assurance and publication of results are accomplished.

SPRUCE S1 Bog Porewater, Groundwater, and Stream Chemistry Data: 2011-2013

This data set reports the chemistry of S1 Bog porewater, outlet stream water, and groundwater from upland wells from 2011 through 2013.  These data provide information for studies of the biogeochemical status of the bog and surrounding groundwater aquifer. 

The data have been analyzed and reported on in the following paper: Griffiths, N.A. and S.D. Sebestyen. 2016. Dynamic vertical profiles of peat porewater chemistry in a northern peatland.  Wetlands, 36:1119–1130, DOI 10.1007/s13157-016-0829-5

SPRUCE Deep Peat Heat (DPH) Metagenomes for Peat Samples Collected June 2015

This data set provides links to the results of metagenomic analyses of 38 peat core samples collected on 16 June 2015 from SPRUCE experiment treatment plots after approximately one year of belowground heating. These metagenomes are archived in the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) system and are available at the accession numbers provided in the accompanying inventory file.

SPRUCE Deep Peat Heating (DPH) Peat Water Content and Temperature Profiles for Experimental Plot Cores, June 2014 through June 2015

This data set provides the peat water content and peat temperature at time of sampling for peat cores collected before and during the SPRUCE Deep Peat Heating (DPH) study. Cores were collected during three sampling events: 03 June 2014, 09 September 2014, and 16 June 2015.

Two cores were extracted from hollow locations in each of the 10 experimental plots (4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 17, 19, and 20). Cores were partitioned into samples at 11 depth increments: 0-10, 10-20, 20-30, 30-40, 40-50, 50-75, 75-100, 100-125, 125-150, 150-175, and 175-200 cm below surface of the hollow.

SPRUCE Large-Collar In Situ CO2 and CH4 Flux Data for the SPRUCE Experimental Plots

This data set reports community-level CO2 and CH4 flux measurements for the SPRUCE experimental study plots located in the S1-Bog. Surface flux measurements of CO2 and CH4 were made using open-path analyzers over an area of 1.13 m2 within each of 16 plots.  A custom-designed chamber encloses the hummock-hollow topography and allows point in time measurements of the shrub, forb, Sphagnum spp. and the complex microbial community.
