Lake Water Level and Temperature from Pressure Sensors

Summary

Water level and temperature measurements were collected hourly in June through August for the years 2008 through 2010 several lakes near Barrow and Atqasuk, Alaska. Solinst Levelogger Jr. water level and temperature sensors were used. Water level measurements were compensated for changes in barometric pressure using a Solinst Barologger Gold which was installed on the land surface near the lakes. Loggers were attached to a cable which had an anchor (sandbag) and float. Rafting lake ice moved sensors for the first weeks of each season until complete ice melt-out (generally in late June to early July). Data from the ice rafting periods has been removed from each sensor record.

The data are stored in one Microsoft Excel file (.xls) with multiple tabs (water_level_sensors.xls). The depth data are in cm and the temperature data, where available, is in Celsius.
