Soil water chemistry collected from nested-suction lysimeters (Soil water samplers, 1900 series, SoilMoisture Equipment Corp., Santa Barbara, CA) along a South (S) Planar (P)and South (S) Swale (S) hillsope transect in the Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory in 2007. Lysimeter nests were located at three different positions along the hillslope elevational gradient; with the most elevated site located at the Ridge Top (RT) followed by the Mid Slope (MS) and lowest site at the Valley Floor (VF). As the lysimeters were installed to the depth of augering refusal, first lysimeters were installed at a depth 10 cm with subsequent lysimeters installed every 10 cm.
