Abstract:

This dataset contains oxygen profile measurements from Pensacola Beach, 2010-2014. Three oxygen profiles were measured with microsensors in order to assess the change in oxygen concentration in the oil contaminated beach during hot, warm, and cold periods of the year. Immediately after the excavation of one trench segment in the oil contaminated beach, O2 optode sensors (Presens fiberoptodes encased in hypodermic syringe needles with fiber tip protectors) were pushed approximately 10 cm horizontally into the sand at 5 cm depth intervals for the determination of O2 in the pore space. Profiles were measured from the surface to 50 cm depth. Despite the protection, sensors could typically not measure more than one profile and then had to be replaced. This dataset supports the publication: Huettel, M., Overholt, W. A., Kostka, J. E., Hagan, C., Kaba, J., Wells, W. B., & Dudley, S. (2018). Degradation of Deepwater Horizon oil buried in a Florida beach influenced by tidal pumping. Marine Pollution Bulletin, 126, 488–500. doi:10.1016/j.marpolbul.2017.10.061

Purpose:

Oxygen profiles were measured in the oil-contaminated beach in order to assess the influence of buried oil on oxygen distribution in the sand and to determine whether aerobic oil degradation can take place in the beach.

In 2010, oil aggregates were embedded in the beach sand. 12 oxygen measurements were compromised because the oxygen sensor hit oil aggregates, and values < 150 μmol L-1 were flagged. The exclusion of flagged data led to underestimates in the standard deviation calculations. Underestimated standard deviations were replaced by the standard deviation calculated for the nearby sediment layer with similar but complete oxygen measurements. In September 2010, all profiles had gaps and the average was used for Fig. 3A. In December 2010, we could measure one complete profile that was close to the average, which was used for Fig. 3A. In June 2014, there was no embedded oil, and the average was used for Fig. 3A.|The accuracy of the oxygen measurements is 1% of the reading, the precision is 0.05% of the reading.|
