Abstract:
An hourly modeling data set is presented for the water years 1984 through 2008 for a snow-dominated headwater catchment. Meteorological forcing data and GIS watershed characteristics are described and provided. The meteorological data are measured at two sites within the catchment, and include precipitation, wind speed and direction, air and soil temperature, relative humidity, dew point temperature, and incoming solar and thermal radiation. Our objective is to provide high quality data to develop, test and apply hydrdologic models over snow-dominated mountain catchments. These data are available from the USDA, Northwest Watershed Research Center, Boise, Idaho, USA, via anonymous ftp: ftp://ftp.nwrc.ars.usda.gov/public/RME_25yr_database .
