Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory - Cole Farm groundwater surface water chemistry 2018

A series of seven wells were drilled to depths of ~2 m (shallow) and ~4.5 m (deep) within and along the tree lines of a forested area in central Cole Farm. This forest is located between two agriculturally active fields on steep slopes. Wells were drilled in pairs, each pair consisting of one deep and one shallow well. A single shallow well was drilled within the interior of the forest (CFW10), and the rest were drilled along the tree lines. Nine surface water sampling sites were established, 6 of which sampled along a rivulet that flowed through the central forest. One surface site (CFUSpring) sampled the source of a perennial spring, and another (SCCF) sampled a tributary called Shaver’s Creek. All samples were analyzed for anions and cations using ion chromatography methods.
