UPDATED August 2021.

This dataset contains hydrologic data from small research catchments organized along an elevation gradient in the Colorado Front Range. Catchments are located in either persistent or intermittent snow zones. Catchments are Michigan River (persistent), Andrews Creek (persistent), Dry Creek (intermittent), Bighorn Creek (intermittent), and Mill Creek (intermittent). These sites each have stream stage/discharge, rain, soil moisture, and temperature data. Data available for water years 2016-2019 at daily time steps. Some sensors have shorter time step data available on request. NA indicates missing data or data screened out for errors.

The following files are available:

-Geospatial: contains a shapefile (frontrange_locations.shp) and a kmz file (frontrange_locations.kmz) giving the sensor locations for each catchment. Catchments each have two points, one for stream gage locations and the other for rain gage, snow depth, temperature, and soil moisture monitoring locations.

-Metadata: description of sensors for each site

-Rating: stage-discharge data for rating curves

-Daily data by site: see Metadata for more information
