After a long and dreary drive I have arrived at Hubbard Brook! After getting settled and moved in to the pleasant view farm house Monday I was able to get out and see watershed 3 today. Scott and I downloaded water level recorder data and pumped water samples as we walked through a lot of the watershed. It was great to finally see the place I have been hearing and writing about all semester. Scott was a great guide, identifying several of the questions that need answering, as well as explaining how to navigate the watershed. After finally exploring watershed 3 I am very excited to get started getting equipment in the ground! The black flies, however, do not inspire the same excitement…
There is much more to come! I hope to continue posting as my work progresses throughout the summer. Cheers!

Welcome to Hubbard Brook JP. The stream network was in full extent (late snowmelt conditions) today. Snowmelt is long over, but May has been a more or less continuous rain storm. It looks like a great summer to be a hydrologist (or a black fly) in New Hampshire.
Just feed the black flies well before I arrive next week! I’m fed up with biting insects!
Looking back… We thought we might have a wet summer. Scott might want to eat his words!
It was a great summer for digging soil pits!
