Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed, Arizona (Meteorologic)

NAL Geospatial Catalog
    The Southwest Watershed Research Center (SWRC) has operated Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed (WGEW), located in the vicinity of Tombstone, Arizona, for more than 50 years. A 17 year (1990-2006) meteorological and soil hydrology database has been established by the USDA Agricultural Research Service, SWRC.

    SGP97 Surface: NOAA/ATDD Little Washita, Oklahoma Long Term Flux Site

    NAL Geospatial Catalog
      The temporal coverage for this dataset is as follows: Begin datetime: 1997-05-31 00:00:00, End datetime: 1997-08-09 23:59:59. NOAA/ATDD (Tilden Meyers) started operation of a long term flux monitoring site near the Little Washita watershed in Oklahoma in 1996. Half-hourly observations of wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, pressure, incoming global radiation, incoming and outgoing visible radiation, net radiation, ground heat flux, precipitation, wetness, skin temperature, soil temperature (at 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 cm), average wind vector speed, kinematic shear stress, streamwise velocity variance, crosswind velocity variance, vertical velocity variance, sensible heat flux, latent energy flux, CO2 flux and soil moisture at 20 cm (started 5 June 1997).

      SGP97 Surface: DOE ARM Energy Balance Bowen Ratio (EBBR) Data

      NAL Geospatial Catalog
        The temporal coverage for this dataset is as follows: Begin datetime: 1997-06-01 00:00:00, End datetime: 1997-07-31 23:59:59. The Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program operates a network of 12 Energy Balance Bowen Ration (EBBR) stations at its Southern Great Plains site. EBBR provides 30-min observations of latent and sensible heat flux along with net radiation, atmospheric pressure, bowen ratio, wind speed and direction, and the following parameters at five locations surrounding the sites: soil moisture, soil temperature, soil heat flow, soil heat capacity and soil heat flow at the surface.

        SGP97 GCIP/NESOB-97 Sub-Surface: National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) Daily Soil Temperature Dataset

        NAL Geospatial Catalog
          This dataset was formed by extracting soil temperature data from the GCIP/Enhanced Seasonal Observing Period 1997 (GCIP/ESOP-97) NCDC Summary of the Day Co-operative Dataset (TD-3200) for the NESOB 1997 area and time of interest. This NCDC Soil Temperature Dataset contains data from approximately 12 stations reporting soil temperature data for the NESOB 1997 time period (01 April 1997 through 31 March 1998) and in a domain slightly beyond that of NESOB 1997 (approximately 94.5W to 102W longitude and 34N to 39.5N latitude).

          US Department of Agriculture Soil Climate Analysis Network (SCAN) site 2027 data, Little River, Tift County, Georgia

          NAL Geospatial Catalog
            This dataset contains air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, solar radiation, wind speed, soil temperature, and soil moisture data from the Soil Climate Analysis Network (SCAN) site 2027, "Little River," located in Tift County, Georgia. The dataset links to a National Resources Conservation Service data request form, from which available data can be queried. The data collection site is at an elevation of 350 feet; data has been continuously collected there since 1999-05-19.
