Abstract

This resource provides two tables of runoff event characteristics from i) long-term and ii) high-frequency (hourly) data that support the study by Winter et al. (2022) with the title "Explaining the Variability in High-Frequency Nitrate Export Patterns Using Long-Term Hydrological Event Classification". Data stems from six mesoscale (39 km² - 460 km²) catchments in in Germany that are sub-catchments of the Bode catchment, part of the TERestrial Environmental Observatories (TERENO, Wollschläger et al., 2017). Runoff events were identified according to Tarasova et al. (2018) and classified according to Tarasova et al. (2020).

Table S3. Runoff event characteristics for 388 events from hourly data including nitrate concentration data (2013 – 2017)
