The field sites in Wisconsin are part of a project to research the groundwater quality and quantity implications of biofuel crop production. Two watersheds, one agricultural and one forested, have approximately 17 sites each where stream discharge measurements, water samples, and basic chemical measurements are taken twice annually. Three of the sites in the agricultural watershed also have stream gauges installed that continuously record temperature and pressure using data loggers. This work is being conducted along with partners at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
We would like to acknowledge the USGS for funding this research.
