Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory Tree Survey (2012 updates)
Kaye, Margot W
Trees in the Shale Hills watershed were originally surveyed in 2008, with the addition of a sample of tree height data and updated diameter measurements in 2010. Tree survey data includes an assigned tree number with associated data including species, diameter, height (when available), and GPS coordinates. Summary data for the overall watershed is also included in this file. The project was funded by NSF 12-39285.
