Lake Suggs NEON - United States of America

Suggs Lake a core aquatic is situated within Ordway-Swisher Biological Station (OSBS) in Putman County and classified as a Marsh lake and Baygall as a function of the major plant communities that surround it. Suggs Lake is an isothermal, mesotrophic lake 0.73 km2 in area and situated at an altitude of 29 m. It has a maximum depth of 5.7 m and a mean depth of 2.5 m. The lake is a seepage lake, with the majority of lakes in Florida being underlain by the Floridan Aquifer dominated by a limestone and dolomite geology. Lake Suggs has a dense population of salamanders, with other common species of amphibians including greater siren (Siren lacertina), lesser siren (Siren intermedia), two-toed amphiuma (Amphiuma means), one-toed amphiuma (Amphiuma pholeter), narrow-striped dwarf siren (Pseudobranchus axanthus), the broad-striped dwarf siren (Pseudobranchus striatus) and the pig frog (Rana grylio).This site has one meteorological station located in the riparian area and one meteorological station above water on a buoy. The met stations are outfitted with the a subset of the same sensors used at terrestrial sites. Measurements include wind speed and direction, air temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, shortwave radiation, and PAR. Eight groundwater wells throughout the site collect specific conductivity, water tempertaure, and elevation of groundwater. This site has one buoy-mounted sensor station and an inlet station and outlet station. Total data products planned for this site: 75
