Edge-of-Field Monitoring Experience: Perspectives and Lessons Learned

August 12, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The presenters will share their experiences from more than a decade of small-scale field-edge monitoring in Wisconsin and neighboring states. The webinar will include information on:

  • Matching data quality and monitoring intensity with study objectives
  • Challenges of change detection and alternative benefits of edge-of-field monitoring data
  • Equipment selection, monitoring challenges
  • Standard operating procedures used and working with fine-scale time-series data
  • Sampling techniques
  • Precipitation-runoff relations and water-quality characteristics of nutrients and sediment in edge-of-field runoff at livestock farms in Wisconsin
  • Comparisons of runoff and water-quality data between surface and subsurface tiles
  • How field conditions and the timing of field-management activities affect the quantity and quality of runoff from agricultural fields

Speakers:

  • Matt Komiskey, Physical Scientist, U.S. Geological Survey / Wisconsin Water Science Center
  • Todd Stuntebeck, Physical Scientist, U.S. Geological Survey / Wisconsin Water Science Center
