Potholes, Wetlands, Water Level, USGS Cottonwood Lake Study Area, North Dakota
The locations of our surveyed potholes are located in the Cottonwood Lake Study Area (CLSA) of the USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC).The HOBO pressure transducers (HOBO Pressure Transducer) used in this hydrologic monitoring study are wireless water level loggers with Bluetooth capabilities for data download. These sensors have a 3-point NIST-traceable calibration certificate from ONSET. They were self-calibrated/lab tested by our NDSU hydrologic modeling group. The measured water level accuracy is ± 0.05 – 0.1%. The sensors were installed in the summers of 2016 and 2017 and removed in late September or early October of each year, respectively. The water level data are unprocessed data, so any missing data have not been corrected or interpolated at this time. The recorded data have a 15-minute time interval. For more information, see the ReadMe file within the zip file of temporal pothole depths.
