Data on diurnal variation in wetland methane flux were collected to 1) improve understanding of short-term, mechanistic drivers of methane flux, and 2) inform sampling protocols to achieve research objectives. An automated gas flux sampling system was used to measure methane flux every 2.5-4 hours for over 230 diel cycles over the course of three growing seasons (2013-2015). Data were collected from a seasonal, depressional wetland located in the Prairie Pothole Region of central North America. These data directly support the associated publication ″Diurnal patterns of methane flux from a depressional, seasonal wetland: mechanisms and methodology″ which is referenced within the Metadata.
