Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site (GLEES) hourly meteorology tower data (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains hourly meteorological tower data collected from 1989-2016 at the Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site (GLEES), in the Snowy Range near Centennial, Wyoming. Data include air temperature, solar radiation, relative humidity, scalar wind speed, wind direction, soil temperature, and wet-dry sensor measurements.

Coram Experimental Forest daily meteorology data for Desert Ridge and Terrace Hills weather stations: 1996-2015

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains daily meteorological data collected at the Desert Ridge and Terrace Hills weather stations located on the Coram Experimental Forest (Flathead National Forest) in Montana. The Terrace Hills weather station was installed in May of 1996, and the Desert Ridge weather station was installed in May of 2001. Data are included up through 2015 for both stations.

Manitou Experimental Forest hourly meteorology data (2nd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
This data publication contains hourly meteorological data collected at the Manitou Experimental Forest (MEF) near Woodland Park, Colorado from June 1998 through 2017. Data include hourly average air temperature, relative humidity, photo-synthetically active radiation (PAR), wind direction and speed, as well as rainfall. Also included are hourly average ground temperatures measured at 2, 8, and 20 inches below ground.

Soils [Chapter 5]

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
This report describes the soils of the Lost Lake, West Glacier Lake, and East Glacier Lake watersheds of GLEES and presents the methods used in conducting both the field and laboratory work. In addition, general statements about the nature of the mapping units used in making the soil maps are provided.

Meteorology [Chapter 7]

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
GLEES is contained within the Snowy Range Observatory. This Observatory consists of many weather stations, precipitation monitors, and stream gages scattered throughout the Snowy Range. These sites have been operated by the Wyoming Water Research Center (WWRC) since 1968. Data from the sites are available from the WWRC and were last summarized by Wesche (1982).

Introduction [Chapter 1]

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
Wilderness ecosystems in the United States are federally mandated and set aside by the Wilderness Act. They are managed to minimize human impact using methods that leave these systems, to the extent possible, in their natural state uninfluenced by manipulation or disruption by humans.

Hydrology [Chapter 9]

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
Three Parshall flumes were installed within East and West Glacier Lakes watersheds during the summer of 1987. Each Parshall flume was prefabricated fiberglass construction fitted with a hypolon liner to bring as much groundwater flow as possible to the surface so that it could be measured by passing the water through the flume.

Aquatics [Chapter 6]

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
Within the GLEES boundary there are three alpine lakes and several streams and ponds. The selection of GLEES as a research site for investigating of the effects of chemical and physical climate change was in part based on the accessibility of these low alkalinity "sensitive" aquatic ecosystems. This chapter provides a brief description of the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the GLEES aquatic ecosystems.

Appendix D: The Map Units for GLEES Soil Survey Area

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
The soils map of GLEES watersheds is shown in chap. 5, fig. 5.1 and the map units are described in this Appendix.

The Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
The Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiment Site (GLEES), a 600 ha research watershed at 3200-3400 m elevation in the Snowy Range of SE Wyoming, has been established to examine the effects of atmospheric deposition on alpine and subalpine ecosystems. This document provides preliminary data on the landscape habitats, floristics, geology, soils, aquatics, atmospheric environment, hydrology, snow, and air quality conditions occurring at GLEES.
