This is a summary of major ion concentrations for water samples collected at Green Lake 4. Under summer conditions (June - October) samples were from the outlet stream from the lake; in winter (November - May) they were from the lake, beneath ice cover.


Sampling location was the outlet stream from Green Lake 4 during the summer and from the lake (beneath ice cover) during winter. Original data are stored with the Niwot LTER data manager.
