Soil turnover by tree uprooting in primary and secondary forests on the island of Puerto Rico was measured in 42 study plots in the months immediately after the passage of a Category 3 hurricane. Trunk basal area explained 61% of the variability of mound volume and 53% of the variability of mound area. The proportion of uprooted trees, the number of uprooted trees, or the proportion of uprooted basal area explained 84–85% of the variation in hurricane-created mound area. These same variables explain 79–85% of the variation in mound volume. The study indicates that the soil turnover period from tree uprooting by Puerto Rican hurricanes is between 1600 and 4800 years. These rates are faster than soil turnover by landslides...

The dataset presents 5- or 15-minute data for turbidity and Fluorescent Dissolved Organic Matter (FDOM) measured by in-stream sensors at the USGS gage Río Icacos near Naguabo (50075000), Luquillo Experimental Forest, Puerto Rico. The measurement period was 10 March, 2017 to 1 March, 2019. The USGS sensors were co-located with sensors for nitrate and specific conductance operated by University of New Hampshire (UNH), and these datasets are all used in the accompanying publication. A 4-month gap in turbidity in 2018 was mostly filled by UNH data, using a relation between USGS turbidity and co-located UNH turbidity when both sensors were operating. The main metric used in the journal paper was the ratio of coefficient...
Supplementary data for studies conducted in the Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF), eastern Puerto Rico include measurements of temperature, relative humidity and cloud immersion at 30-minute resolution. Temperature and relative humidity were measured at five sites; two primary sites have records from March 2014 to June 2019; other sites have shorter records within that period. From these data, derived values of dew point, vapor pressure deficit (VPD), and evaporative fraction were calculated. Daily 13:00 temperature and VPD gradients with elevation along the windward forested slope were calculated using the 2 primary sites from from March 2014 to November 2014, then on days with data from at least 3 of the 5...
