WHAT CAN STREAMPULSE DO FOR YOU? BUILDING THE STREAM METABOLISM PIPELINE
Recent advances in low-cost aquatic sensor technologies make continuous monitoring of dissolved oxygen and many other ecosystem metabolic parameters easier than ever before. However, these parameters require significant effort to synthesize estimates of aquatic ecosystem productivity and respiration. The StreamPULSE project is lowering the barriers for investigators interested in measuring these fundamental metabolic rates by compiling standard sensor, field and calibration protocols, web based data processing, and a concise data pipeline to rapidly route raw data through cleaning, analysis and modeling steps. Here we acknowledge the difficulties of data consistency across multiple monitoring locations as well as making these data open, visible, and available. Ultimately, we hope the StreamPULSE platform will facilitate and build a global network of flowing water metabolic rates and regimes.
