Scientific monitoring at Hotcake Slough - Main study site

At this study site in Hotcake Slough, we monitored the vertical temperature profile from the groundwater upwelling, through the water column, ice, snow, and into the air. In 2012, we monitored the temperature in three different locations. The upper site is typically covered with snow and ice and the middle site is typically ice free, while the lower site is in a transition zone that is often covered in ice, but throughout the entire winter.
