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 Plot-Level Water Table Data Assessments for Absolute Elevations and Height with Respect to Mean Hollows Beginning in 2015

This data set provides a record of the half-hourly automated water table depth data collected for 12 SPRUCE plots (4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 20, and 21) beginning during deep peat heating (DPH) in 2015 and continuing throughout the whole ecosystem warming (WEW) manipulations for the SPRUCE Project (Hanson et al. 2017). Also provided are plot normalized data for water table depths with respect to mean hollow locations within each plot. The hollow referenced data provide the basis for the intercomparison of peat saturation or aeration across treatment plots.

SPRUCE Production and Chemistry of Newly-Grown Fine Roots Assessed Using Root Ingrowth Cores in SPRUCE Experimental Plots beginning in 2014

This dataset reports growth and chemistry of newly-grown fine roots from root ingrowth cores in the SPRUCE experimental enclosures. There is one comma separated file (.csv) that provides fine-root growth and chemistry data for the ten SPRUCE experimental enclosures from years 2014 to 2017. These data were used to assess the warming and elevated CO2 response of fine roots and also capture responses across microtopographical features and plant types.

SPRUCE Large-Collar In Situ CO2 and CH4 Flux Data for the SPRUCE Experimental Plots: Whole-Ecosystem-Warming

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.

SPRUCE Bog Surface Elevation Assessments with SET Instrument Beginning in 2013

This data set reports plot-specific bog surface elevation measurements collected with the SPRUCE Elevation Transect (SET) instrument. Measurements are reported as absolute elevation in meters above mean sea level for two locations in each of the SPRUCE experimental treatment plots and additional ambient boardwalk plots -- 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20 and 21.

This data set reports measurements collected from June 2013 through August 2018, but it will be appended annually as new data are collected.

SPRUCE Shrub-Layer Growth Assessments in S1-Bog Plots and SPRUCE Experimental Plots beginning in 2010

This data set reports shrub layer growth assessments for the S1-Bog on the Marcell Experimental Forest in Minnesota from 2010 through 2018. Data were obtained by destructively harvesting two 0.25 m2 plots within defined plot areas of the S1-Bog or SPRUCE experimental plots. In 2015, SPRUCE plots 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 17, 19 and 20 were enclosed in the SPRUCE enclosures. Prior to 2015 all data are for open ambient conditions.

SPRUCE Tree Growth Assessments of Picea and Larix in S1-Bog Plots and SPRUCE Experimental Plots beginning in 2011

This data set reports tree growth measurements of mature Picea mariana and Larix laricina located in the S1-Bog permanent plots and the SPRUCE experimental study plots.

Annual data collections were initiated in February of 2011and have been continued on an annual basis during mid-winter observation periods at the end of February or early March.  Data collections are anticipated to continue through February of 2025 and this data set will be appended annually.
