Dataset Overview

Raw high-frequency lake data (water temperature, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll flourescence, and pH) from Acton Lake buoy collected at the reservoir outflow at a depth of 1.5 m. Buoy was typically deployed in lake from April/May to September/October. Original data collected at 15 minute intervals from 2010-04-23 to 2016-04-21 08:00 and switched to 10 minute intervals on 2016-04-28 13:40 (with gap in between April 21-28) until the end of the dataset on 2016-10-17 15:00.
