Nutrient fluxes for rainfall and throughfall in the Bisley watersheds

Project Description: 

Nutrient fluxes in rainfall and throughfall have been measured weekly in a mature
subtropical wet forest in NE Puerto Rico for over a 15-year period that included the effects
of 10 named tropical storms, several prolonged dry periods, and volcanic activity in the
region. During the first 15 years mean annual rainfall and throughfall were 3482 and 2131 mm/yr, respectively. Average annual rainfall and throughfall fluxes of K, Ca, Mg, Cl, Na, and SO4–S were similar but somewhat larger than those reported for most tropical forests. Rainfall inputs of nitrogen

East Peak Climate

Project Description: 

The overall goal of this effort is to monitor the surface climate of the upper Luquillo Mountains. This station provides basic hourly and daily climate data that is comparable to the Bisley and El Verde stations at lower elevations. It also provides the long-term reference data that supplements shorter-term, high frequency measurements.
