SPRUCE Diurnal and Seasonal Patterns of Water Potential in S1 Bog and SPRUCE Experimental Plot Vegetation beginning in 2010

This data set reports on water potential from excised terminal shoots or leaves (Mainthemum only) of vegetation at the SPRUCE site located in the S1 bog. Pretreatment measurements were collected from outside plots within the S1 bog. Post treatments were collected from inside SPRUCE plots. There are 10 experimental plots in SPRUCE: five temperature treatments (+0, +2.25, +4.5, +6.75, +9°C) at ambient CO2, and the same five temperature treatments at elevated CO2 (+500 ppm). These data span the pre- and post-treatment periods when enclosed plots were exposed to warming and elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) within the SPRUCE experiment. The pretreatment samples were collected from south end of the S1 bog prior to SPRUCE boardwalk construction, then throughout the bog once the boardwalks were completed. Plant water potentials were measured throughout the growing season, either throughout the day (diurnals) or at predawn (early in the morning prior to foliage receiving any direct radiation) or midday (generally between 10:00-14:00 when daily plant water potential is at its lowest point.
