This resource includes two datasets for High Park Fire sediment yield and sediment load from June-October 2013.

The first file, HPF_hillslope_observed.csv contains hillslope sediment yield data that were originally reported in Schmeer et al. (2018).

The column values are:
"Site" = site ID
Area_ha = field-delineated hillslope area
SY_Mg_ha = measured hillslope sediment yield in Mg per ha
P_mm = total precipitation depth measured at the nearest rain gauge

The second file, HPF_watershed_simulated, contains simulated total watershed sediment loads for multiple models discretized at varying target hillslope resolutions.

The column values are:
"area_ha" = target area for the hillslopes
"watershed" = name of the watershed simulated, either Hill Gulch or Skin Gulch
"model" = name of the model used,
"Mg" = watershed total sediment load in Mg
"fraction" = fraction increase in watershed total sediment load relative to the sediment load simulated for 0.5 ha hillslope resolution
