Description

This repository contains lake water quality responses to the 2021 Greenwood Fire in Superior National Forest, Minnesota, USA (near Isabella, MN in northeastern MN). Thirty lakes (15 burned watershed, 15 control) were sampled monthly from May-September 2022 along various fire disturbance gradients (e.g., % watershed burned) and in relation to hydrologic connectivity (i.e., drainage vs. isolated lakes). Much of the non-water quality data we used came from published sources, which are described and referenced below. This repository also contains R code used to analyze and visualize data, as well as some output figures.

Notes

A few moose were seen during sampling trips.
