AGW02 Measurement of groundwater physical and chemical properties from wells in contrasting land uses near Kings Creek

Summary

Short name: 

AGW02

Abstract: 

Wells were drilled in two sites on Konza Prairie Biological Station in April, 1993 approximately 100 m from Kings Creek. The two sites are located in a grassland and an agricultural area. The grassland site (K01A) is an old field that was planted with brome sometime prior to 1976. It has not been grazed for 25 years and is burned in spring every 1-2 years. The agricultural site is currently under a mix of cultivation and restoration plots. Historically, it was cultivated from sometime between 1939 and 1950 to the present. It is approximately 1 km downstream in an area geologically similar to K01A. The soil at both sites is mapped as Reading silt loam (fine, mixed, mesic Typic Arguidolls). Samples are taken monthly by PVC bailer following removal of 2 times the well volume. Samples are analyzed with same methods as used for LTER stream water chemistry.
