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. This April 2021 release (version 3) is an updated and expanded version and replaces the previous release.

These data are the pre- and post-treatment data from the warming and elevated CO2 treatments associated with the SPRUCE experiment. There are 10 experimental plots in SPRUCE: 5 temperature treatments (+0, +2.25, +4.5, +6.75, +9°C) at ambient CO2, and the same 5 temperature treatments at elevated CO2 (+500 ppm). There are 7 additional ambient plots without experimental enclosures, and thus a total of 17 plots.
