Abstract

Daily evaporation, precipitation, streamflow and maximum and minimum temperature for 431 MOPEX catchments and other catchment properties such as drainage area, elevation and slope used to estimate catchment scale groundwater recharge, deep storage and vegetation water use efficiency. Geospatial catchment properties were derived from 90 m SRTM elevation dataset.

DAILY MOPEX HYDROLOGIC TIME SERIES

This zip file contains daily time series of hydrologic data. 
The precipitation is processed in NWS Hydrology Laboratory. 
The Potential Evaporation is based on NOAA Evaporation Atlas 
(Farnsworth, et al., 1982). The streamflow is obtained from 
USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) (available at
http://water.usgs.gov/nwis):

Col. 1: date (yyyymmdd)
     2: mean areal precipitation (mm)
     3: climatic potential evaporation (mm)
       (based NOAA Freewater Evaporation Atlas)
     4: daily streamflow discharge (mm)
     5: daily maximum air temperature (Celsius)
     6: daily minimum air temperature (Celsius)

Time period: 1948  2003

File names: GAGENUMBER.dly
            where GAGENUMBER is a USGS gage number.
     
The ZIPS directory contains zipped time series data.  
These are orgainized by USGS gage numbers.  

Data were downloaded from: 
ftp://hydrology.nws.noaa.gov/pub/gcip/mopex/US_Data/Us_438_Daily/

DAILY EVAPORATION TIME SERIES

North American Regional Reanalysis (NARR) data were obtained from 
the http://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov/data/narr/ and some description 
can be found at http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/mmb/rreanl/.

Time period: 1979  2008
Temporal resolution: daily
Temporal resolution (original): 3 hours
Spatial resolution: 32 km


The reanalysis data were re-sampled to higher resolution (~6 km) 
and spatially averaged for each catchment and then averaged for 
each day. Derived data are located in the directory NARR/EVAP/daily/ 
at the ftp server ftp://voda.hwr.arizona.edu/mopex/.

There is 431 files in the directory and the name of each file is 
USGS gage number with extension det. Each text file contains 3 columns:

1: date (yyyymmdd) based on Local Time
2: EVP:sfc:kpds=57,1,0:0-24hr acc:winds are N/S: Evaporation  [mm/day]
3: PEVAP:sfc:kpds=228,1,0:0-24hr acc:winds are N/S: Potential evaporation 
   [mm/day]

File names: GAGENUMBER.det
            where GAGENUMBER is a USGS gage number.
