This data repository is a companion to a a manuscript submitted to JGR: Earth Surface.
Harrison , E. J. et al. 2019. Dynamic Critical Zone architecture driven by subsurface flow in the Luquillo Mountains, Puerto Rico

It contains one jupyter notebook and three data files.

1. The juypter notebook contains the companion code to generate the model and figures 5&7 in presented in the manuscript. Works with data file DA-QCalc
2. DA-QCalc contains drainage area measurements, cosmogenic 10Be derived erosion rates, and field measurements of baseflow discharge.
3. Cronus_in contains the inputs used to calculate longterm erosion rates using CRONUS
4. GIS_ChannelParams contains GIS measurements of channel geometries made using a 1-m LiDAR DEM, companion to Figure 3 in the manuscript

Additional Metadata

Name Value
DA-QCalc.csv Data File column descriptions: - 'Site ID' : unique identifyer for each channel, either the source point or site of discharge measurement - 'DA m^2' : drainage area of watershed above Site ID in m^2 - 'DA km^2' : drainage area of watershed above Site ID in km^2 - 'Type' : either spring or fluvial - 'Catchment' : IC for Icacos, SAB for Sabana, CUY for Cubuy, PRI for Prieto - 'Measured Q' : measured with salt plug injection or weir - 'Rainfall norm' : normalization following precipitation model from Murphey et al (2017) - 'Adjusted Q' : Q normalized between catchments to account for differences in total precip - 'Erosion rate' : m/My measured with *in situ* 10Be - 'Erosion uncert' : m/My uncertainty in erosion rate - 'Citation' : included if the data was originally reported in Brocard et al. 2016
Cronus_in.csv Variables used to calculate erosion rates from the measured concentrations of 10Be using the CRONUS online calculator.
GIS_ChannelParams.csv Contains a site ID number, watershed name, latitude and longitude coordinates (DD), elevation of the spring emergence point (m) , measurement of bankfull channel width (m), radius of the tip at the channel source point (m), calculated channel aspect ratio, the elevation of the ridgeline the channel incises (m), and the difference in elevation between the spring and the ridge crest (m). Companion to figure 3 in the manuscript.
Dynamic architecture companion code This notebook is designed to be used in conjunction with a data file DA-QCalc.csv. It contains code to generate a model relating catchment drainage area to baseflow discharge rates by bootstrapping field measurements and averaging 1000 iterated linear regressions. The model predicts baseflow discharge rate for catchments where the drainage area has been measured. The code also runs a regression on a linear function relating measured longterm erosion rates to baseflow discharge predictions.
