Supporting data – Floating Gardens, Chicago River, April 29, 2018 to November 19, 2019
Floating garden, Nitrate, Chloride, Plant Uptake
Between April 29, 2018 to November 19, 2019, water samples were collected upstream and downstream of a floating garden installed along the Chicago River. At each location, samples were collected at the surface and at 0.3 m below the surface. In-situ measurements of Dissolved Oxygen, Specific Conductance, and Temperature were recorded with a YSI 85. Anion samples were analyzed using a Ion Chromatograph for fluoride (F-), chloride (Cl-), nitrate as nitrogen (NO3-N), phosphate (PO4-3), and sulfate (SO4-2). The available dataset provides the recorded field parameters and the analyzed ion concentrations.
