M.A. Briggs, 2018, Chemical and geophysical data collected along Oh-be-joyful Creek, Gunnison National Forest, Colorado: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


As part of their Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area (SFA), Berkeley Lab and its collaborating institutions (e.g., USGS) have established a "Community Watershed" in the headwaters of the East River near Crested Butte, Colorado (USA), designed to quantify processes impacting the ability of mountainous systems to retain and release water, nutrients, carbon, and metals. The ongoing research spans a range of scales from hillslope to catchment to basin, with surface water and groundwater linking multiple geomorphic compartments. A major goal of this SFA research is to generate a transferable understanding of mountain hillslope to river dissolved nutrient, carbon, and metals transport, integrating extensive and novel field observations [...]
