Brush Creek

The Brush Creek Station was installed and began collecting data in the summer of 2014. Located at an elevation of around 7,780 feet, the station is in a high altitude meadow near Brush Creek and is surrounded primarily by smooth brome. This area was previously heavily impacted by ranching and is designated for future restoration by Pitkin County Open Space and Trails. This station is powered by a solar panel and measures air temperature, relative humidity, soil temperature at 8 inches, and soil moisture at 2, 8, and 20 inch depths.

Soil Type:

Clay | 6.8% OM | 5.4ppm NO3 | 4.0ppm P | 6.5 pH

Measurements:

Air Temperature | Relative Humidity | Soil Moisture at 2, 8, and 20in (5, 20, and 51cm) | Soil Temperature at 8in (20cm)

Live data are collected every 20 minutes and transmitted every four hours. Live data have not been checked for anomalies or potential false readings and soil moisture readings are not calibrated. Archived data has been cleaned and calibrated, but rain readings should not be considered accurate when temperatures are below freezing.

Funding

The Brush Creek Station is managed by AGCI with support from Pitkin County Open Space and Trails.
