Goodwater Creek Experimental Watershed Weather Data

The United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) Cropping Systems and Water Quality Research Unit operates a network of instruments to measure relevant weather parameters in the Goodwater Creek Experimental Watershed (GCEW). This watershed is the core of the Central Mississippi River Basin (CMRB) node in the Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) Network. The current network of weighing, recording rain gauges stands at nine gauges in 73 square kilometers; standard 20-cm weighing gauges (Universal Recording Rain Gage, 5-780-9, Belfort Instrument Co.) with daily charts are installed at each site. An automated weather station also records air and soil temperature, and precipitation at an hourly and daily temporal scale.
