Estimated evapotranspiration from a hypothetical short grass with a height of 0.12 m, a surface resistance of 70 s m-1, and an albedo of 0.23 (no water stress). Dataset contains daily total estimated evapotranspiration.
Data set contains results of chemical analysis of wetfall samples collected on Konza Prairie. Analysis is done by the Central Analytical Lab (CAL), Champaign, IL as part of the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP). NADP data products available on the NADP/NTN web site (nadp.slh.wisc.edu/data/NTN/) include: Annual Data Summaries, Semiannual Data Reports, Annual and Seasonal Averages, Monthly Averages, and Weekly data. Konza Prairie LTER archives and provides the weekly data in electronic form.
Data set contains daily records of precipitation on 10 raingauges at 10 sites on Konza Prairie. Two sites (020A and 002C; SE) have 7-day clocks (one revolution per week), 7 have 24-hour clocks (one revolution per day), and the Headquarters raingauge generates daily data and 15 minute data. The Headquarters raingauge generates data year round. The remaining rain gauges are operated from April 1 to October 31. Precipitation amounts are recorded in mm.
Data set contains the monthly values of maximum, minimum and average temperatures and monthly total precipitation for Manhattan, KS since 1891. Data are in three separate files, one for each measurement. Data comes from the Weather Data Library (https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cdo-web/search?datasetid=GHCND) in the computer system office of the Cooperative Extension Service of Kansas State University, Manhattan Kansas. 211 Umberger Hall, (785) 532-6270.
The following weather data are included in this data set: hourly: mean temperature, mean relative humidity, mean wind speed, total precipitation total solar radiation, wind direction, max wind speed (sampled on the hour; record type 1) ; daily: mean, maximum and minimum air temperature, relative humidity, total precipitation, total solar radiation; mean, maximum and minimum soil temperature, average wind speed (sampled at midnight; record type 2). These data are collectecd by a micrologger at headquarters on Konza Prairie.
‘Measurements include rainfall amounts, nitrate (NO3-N), ammonia (NH4-H), soluble reactive phosphate (SRP), and total nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations in bulk precipitation collected at multiple locations.
Amounts and nitrogen content of water passing through the canopy of tallgrass prairie are compared to similar measurements of bulk precipitation. Measurements include nitrate, ammonia, phosphate and organic nitrogen and phosphorus content of bulk precipitation and throughfall. Variables of interest include vegetation type and amounts, time of year, and time since burning.
The objectives of this project are to quantify the seasonably variable timing among meteoric precipitation, groundwater recharge, and groundwater temperature. Hypotheses are: 1. Because of the karst-like characteristics of the aquifers in N04d (and by extension, the entire region), recharge will be rapid during moderately large precipitation events where fractures are enlarged by dissolution and therefore highly conductive, except during the most active part of the growing season. 2.
