Wetland Hydrometric Hydrology

Depth to water table data collected from wetlands in the oil sands region by Alberta Environment and Parks for the OSM program.

Pressure is measured using either a HOBO Water Level Logger (U20-001-04) and converted to water table depth using HOBO Pro software, or a Solinst Levelogger5 (3001) and converted to water table depth using Levelogger Software.

Usage Considerations or Constraints Data represents hourly water level at each wetland site through the growing season (May-October) to characterize hydrologic conditions of the site. This is used to detect site-specific changes in hydrology. Uploaded data have undergone QA/QC review to remove spurious results such as instrument failure. The first few days of readings for each monitoring period should be used with caution due to self-calibration of equipment. Absolute pressure readings are corrected to local (within 15km, or nearest available station) barometric pressure, and converted to water level (m).
