  • Instrumentation in river. The parameters are the following ones: - water level (available) - Temperature (available) - Conductivity (to set up) - Turbidity (available) - pH / dissolved oxygen / Potential oxydo-reduction (to set up) Laboratoire Géosciences Réunion – IPGP

  • Rain gauge measurements in watershed "Rivière des Pluies", Reunion Island 2 types of rain gauge: - Pluviographe: rain gauge with tipping (0,2 mm). Location: Piton Fougères - Adding rain gauges which is applied the chemistry water protocol. Location: Piton Fougères and University (Moufia-Saint Denis) Laboratoire Géosciences Réunion – IPGP

  • Piezometer measurements in watershed "Rivière des Pluies", Reunion Island Continuous measures in groundwater: - Level water (systematically) - Temperature (sometimes) - Conductivity (sometimes) Laboratoire Géosciences Réunion – IPGP

  • Le projet a pour objectif d'améliorer le signal de la pluie détectée par les géophones en comparant les données météorologiques d'un disdromètre, d'un pluviomètre et de 3 géophones afin d'extraire des données des sismographes pour mieux comprendre le transport sédimentaire issu du réseau sismologique installé dans la rivière des pluies et la rivière du Mat. Les objectifs sont : 1) déterminer les caractéristiques sismiques de la pluie sur le site de mesures 2) A terme, comprendre le déclenchement des éboulements et glissements liés aux pluies A court terme, ce projet devrait aussi permettre de : 1) comprendre pour un même type de pluie l'influence de sols de rugosités différentes sur les signaux enregistrés par les sismomètres 2) intégrer/contraindre pour un même type de sol l'influence de types de pluies différentes sur les enregistrements des sismomètres 3) déterminuer l'influence des tailles des gouttes et du nombre de gouttes (indications données par le disdromètre) sur le signal sismique

    The ERORUN-STAFOR Observatory Data Management Plan (DMP) is related to the French network of critical zone observatories (OZCAR) located in an insular tropical and volcanic context, integrating a “Tropical Mountain Cloud Forest '' (TMCF). This collaborative observatory is located in the northern part of Réunion island (Indian Ocean) within the watershed of Rivière des Pluies (45.0 km²) which hosts the TMCF of Plaines des Fougères, one of the best preserved natural habitats in Réunion Island. Since 2015, the ERORUN-STAFOR monitoring in collaboration with local partners collected a multidisciplinary dataset with a constant improvement of the instrumentation over time. At the watershed scale and in its vicinity, the ERORUN-STAFOR Observatory includes 10 measurement stations covering the upstream, midstream and downstream part of the watershed. The stations record a total of 48 different variables through continuous (sensors) or periodic (sampling) monitoring. The dataset consists of continuous time series variables related to (i) meteorology, including precipitation, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, net radiation, atmospheric pressure, cloud water flux, irradiance, leaf wetness and soil temperature, (ii) hydrology, including water level and temperature, discharge and electrical conductivity of stream, (ii) hydrogeology, including groundwater level, water temperature and electrical conductivity in two piezometers and one groundwater gallery completed by soil moisture measurements under the canopy. The database is completed by periodic time series variables related to (iv) hydrogeochemistry, including field parameters and water analysis results. The periodic sampling survey provides chemical and isotopic compositions of rainfall, groundwater, and stream water at different locations of this watershed. The ERORUN-STAFOR monitoring database extends November 2014 to April 2022 with an acquisition frequency from 10 min to hourly for the sensor variables and from weekly to monthly frequency for the sampling. Despite the frequent maintenance of the monitoring sites, several data gaps exist due to the remote location of some sites and instrument destruction by extreme events such as cyclones. This observatory is a unique research site in an insular volcanic tropical environment offering three windows of observation for the study of critical zone processes through upstream-midstream-downstream measurements sites. This high-resolution database is valuable to assess the response of volcanic tropical watersheds and aquifers at both event and long-term scales (i.e. global change). It will also allow various progress in understanding the significant role of the TMCF in the recharge processes, the hydrogeological conceptual model of volcanic islands, the watershed hydro sedimentary responses to extreme climatic events and their respective evolution under changing climatic conditions.
