Kaplan, L.A. 2019. Environmental Data Initiative.


Dissolved organic carbon concentrations were measured over a period of 4 decades in a 3rd-order reach of White Clay Creek, a stream with a forested riparian zone in the Southeastern Pennsylvania Piedmont. Stream water was filtered through pre-combusted glass fiber filters and analyzed in a variety of dissolved organic carbon analyzers. The data have been used to investigate organic matter biogeochemistry and the role of dissolved organic matter in supporting heterotrophic metabolism in the stream.
