These data show locations of samples and research areas at Konza that do not fit under our standard classifications. Record type 1 (GIS 600) contains the locations of the Hulbert plots on Konza Prairie. Record type 6 (GIS605) contains locations for rainfall shelters, ramps, experimental streams, restoration plots, the weather station, grasshopper cages, the climate extremes project. Currently no associated LTER datasets exist for these locations. Record type 11 (GIS 610) provides a record of the historic Konza gridded location system. Older datasets may reference these locations with a column letter and row number. Record type 16 (GIS615) contains the location for the Clean Air Status and Trends Network (CASTNET) site on Konza Prairie. For more information, visit the following link: http://www.epa.gov/castnet/javaweb/site_pages/KNZ184.html. Record type 21 (GIS620) contains the location for the USGS gauging station. These data may be used in conjunction with the Stream Discharge for Kings Creek Measured at USGS Gauging Station (ASD01) dataset. For more information, visit the following link: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/nwisman/?site_no=06879650. Record types 31 (GIS630) and 36 (GIS635) contain the location and treatment information for two bison grant grazing experiments.
