This dataset includes high-frequency sensor data collected during four consecutive summers from buoys deployed at main channel and backwater sites in Pool 8 of the Upper Mississippi River from 2015-2018. It also includes the event-specific concentration-discharge metrics (hysteresis and slope) calculated by combining the water quality sensor data with discharge data from a nearby USGS gage in Winona, MN (05378500). High-frequency sensor data were collected using water quality buoys (PISCES monitoring platforms; EMM350 Water Monitoring Pontoon Platform | ysi.com | ysi.com; Yellow Springs, Ohio) set up with EXO2 Multiparameter Sondes (YSI, Inc, Yellow Springs, Ohio) to monitor hourly or bi-hourly concentrations of...

Extended time-series sensor data were collected between 2012 and 2016 in surface water of a tidal salt-marsh creek on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The objective of this field study was to measure water chemical characteristics and flows, as part of a study to quantify lateral fluxes of dissolved carbon species between the salt marsh and estuary. Data consist of in-situ measurements including: salinity, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, redox potential, fluorescent dissolved organic matter, turbidity and chlorophyll. Surface water flow, water level and water elevation data were also measured. The data provided in this release represent a compiled data set consisting of multiple sensor deployments between 2012 and 2016.

The USGS CAWSC Organic Matter Research Laboratory (OMRL) provides laboratory services and support to regional and national projects in the analysis of organic matter using the latest methods in absorbance and fluorescence spectroscopy. Optical measurements such as absorbance and fluorescence are used to gain insight into dissolved organic matter (DOM) composition, and can also serve as proxies for more expensive and difficult to obtain measurements. These techniques are relatively rapid and inexpensive and allow for the comprehensive tracking of DOM dynamics in aquatic ecosystems ranging from rivers and lakes to estuaries to open marine systems. Absorbance spectra and fluorescence matrices were simultaneously collected...

These data are associated with experiments performed in 2016 and 2017 in the Fox rivermouth (Green Bay, WI; Lake Michigan). Between the De Pere Dam and the Lake Michigan coastline, we performed experiments to measure water column transformation of dissolved organic matter (DOM) and sediment flux of DOM. These experiments consisted of incubations of surface water or intact sediment cores and repeated measures over time of DOM concentration and optical properties. When these experiments were performed, we also measured inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus dynamics. Results and data related to nitrogen and phosphorus have already been published. We also measured ancillary environmental data that would assist in understanding...

Abstract (from http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10021-014-9777-1): The Coast Mountains of southeast Alaska are currently experiencing some of the highest rates of glacier volume loss on Earth, with unknown implications for proglacial stream biogeochemistry. We analyzed streamwater for δ18O and dissolved organic matter (DOM) biogeochemistry (concentration, δ13C-dissolved organic carbon (DOC), and fluorescence characterization) during the 2012 glacial runoff season from three coastal watersheds in southeast Alaska that ranged in glacier coverage from 0 to 49% and a glacier outflow stream. Our goal was to assess how DOM biogeochemistry may change as receding glaciers are replaced by forests and glaciers contribute...
In arid ecosystems, as much as 75% of solar radiation that penetrates the atmosphere hits the surface of the soil. The combination of high irradiance, high temperature, and low moisture puts constraints on the activity and organization of microbial communities. To separate the direct effects of UV absorbance on litter decomposition from the indirect effects of microbial selection, we placed mixed cohorts of senescent pi´┐Żon (Pinus edulis) and juniper (Juniperus monosperma) litter into triplicate microcosms assigned to four treatments: UV irradiated (0.6 mW/cm2 UV-A and UV-B for 12 h/day), with and without water additions, and non-irradiated with and without water additions. After 26 weeks, mass loss rates did not...
