South Fork Caspar Creek Understory Evapotranspiration Data - 2019

Dataset

Description

Abstract
This dataset consists of evapotranspiration rates measured from different understory trees, shrubs, and ferns at the Caspar Creek Experimental Watersheds in northern California. Evapotranspiration rates were collected from 5 species at two times (June and July 2019) across five topgraphic positions ranging from streamside up to the ridgetop. Measurement species were located across a range of disturbance severities to test the hypothesis that changing light and water dynamics from different levels of disturbance will affect understory plant water use. Evapotranspiration rates were collected using a hand-made portable rapid ET chamber.
