Chemistry for water samples collected from the Shaver's Creek Watershed are presented as part of Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory research. Water samples were collected from 2 subcatchments in the watershed: Shale Hills (SH) and Garner Run (GR). Samples were also collected from three sites along the mainstem of Shaver's Creek: above Lake Perez (SCAL), below Lake Perez (SCBL), and near the stream outlet (SCO). Grab samples were collected from the stream sites on a bi-weekly to monthly basis during 2014. Samples were processed for major cations, anions, and general physiochemical parameters as soon as possible following collection. This work was funded by NSF Critical Zone Observatory program grants to C. Duffy (EAR 07-25019) and S. L. Brantley (EAR 12-39285, EAR 13-31726).
