NBS01 Belowground Plot Experiment: Soil Water Chemistry from Lysimeters

Summary

Short name: 

NBS01

Abstract: 

To address the potential interactive effects of fire, aboveground biomass removal, and nutrient amendments on above- and belowground responses, a long-term field experiment was initiated in 1986 as part of the Konza Prairie Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program. The general goals of this experiment are: 1) to document both short- and long-term responses of plants and soils to fire, aboveground biomass removal (a surrogate for grazing in these small plots), and nutrient amendments (additions of N and/or P); and 2) to provide a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying tallgrass prairie responses to fire, aboveground biomass removal and nutrient enrichment. Soil water nitrogen composition is measured using porous cup lysimeters from samples from nitrogen fertilized and control plots. Measurements include nitrate, ammonium, phosphate, and organic nitrogen and phosphorus
