On Friday, November 29, 2019, CAES IAPP placed three HOBO data loggers in Lake Beseck, Middlefield with the Lake Beseck Environment Committee and Aquatic Ecosystem Research. These data loggers will track air temperature, sediment temperature, and sediment moisture during the winter drawdown of the lake. Below are graphs of the data from November 29, 2019 to February 23, 2020. HOBO Site 3 had two sediment moisture probes, labeled as A and B. HOBO 3 was also removed from December 16 - 24, 2019 because of increasing water levels. The temperature is listed in degrees Celsius, zero is freezing.
*Note: When sediment temperature is below freezing, the accuracy of sediment moisture declines.
