SPRUCE Tritium in Porewater of SPRUCE Experimental Plots and Neighboring Peatlands, and in Groundwater, Stream Water, and Precipitation of the S1 Bog, 2014-2016

This data set reports the tritium concentrations in (1) porewater from selected SPRUCE experimental plots located in the S1 bog and in (2) groundwater, streamwater, and precipitation in the S1 bog watershed, and (3) in porewater from the S2 bog, S3 fen, and Bog Lake fen. All sites are located at the USDA Forest Service, Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF) near Grand Rapids, MN. Samples were collected between June of 2014 and August of 2016.

These data include samples collected pre- and post- belowground warming 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).

Porewater samples in this dataset were collected from three of the warming treatment plots (+0, +4.5, +9°C) at ambient CO2.
