Berea Water Laboratory Studies
||To monitor rainfall, streamflow and chemical composition of
water from several sites in Kentucky.
||Daniel Boone National Forest, Kentucky
||A total of 20 areas were monitored using flumes. Most areas
had a single flume site.
|Likelihood of Locating Study Areas:
||Streamflow was measured continuously using flumes. rainfall
was measured continuously using a tipover bucket.
|Variables and Sampling Frequency:
||rainfall, streamflow, chemical analysis (heavy metal, pH).
||Field equipment was frequently checked and calibrated. Data
was carefully entered into computer and backed up.
||Data are on Compaq PC in binary format and are backed up onto
floppies. Separate programs are used to analyze the data and
are also backed up onto floppies.
|Global Change Research Applications:
||Studies of Ecosystem Processes
Landscape Scale Studies
