The Location

This is a winter picture of where our study takes place. On the south side of this bluff is where we installed our soil moisture probes. We chose the location because we were able to compare this site to a lower site by a pond. The water table seems to be much closer to the roots of the lower area.

The upper bluff site is 25 feet higher than the site at the bottom of the hill, so it doesn't get as much moisture We measured the vertical elevation with a transit barrowed from a local builder.
