Title: High frequency sediment surface temperature measurements at GCE-LTER study hammock PC_i_29 from 15-Aug-2008 to 24-Sep-2012
Abstract: Sediment surface temperature was recorded at 5 minute intervals adjacent to 7 groundwater wells installed at the GCE-LTER study hammock PC_i_29 on Sapelo Island, Georgia, from 15-Aug-2008 to 24-Sep-2012. Temperature was measured using Onset Hobo Tidbit temperature loggers that were placed onto the surface of the sediment in shallow PVC enclosures to protect against solar radiation. Data were downloaded from the logger and processed using the manufacturer's software, then imported into MATLAB for post-processing, quality control and documention. Individual data tables were created for each location to minimize file size for analysis, but complete location and deployment information are included in each table to facilitate integration. These data were collected as part of the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER Intensive Hammock Characterization project to illucidate the timing of marsh inundation, and will be used for groundwater modeling studies at two marsh hammocks on Sapelo Island, Georgia.
