The objective of this HydroShare resource is to query AORC v1.0 Forcing data stored on HydroShare's Thredds server and create a subset of this dataset for a designated watershed and timeframe. The user is prompted to define their temporal and spatial frames of interest, which specifies the start and end dates for the data subset. Additionally, the user is prompted to define a spatial frame of interest, which could be a bounding box or a shapefile, to subset the data spatially.

Before the subsetting is performed, data is queried, and geospatial metadata is added to ensure that the data is correctly aligned with its corresponding location on the Earth's surface. To achieve this, two separate notebooks were created - [this notebook]( and [this notebook] ( - which explain how to query the dataset and add geospatial metadata to AORC v1.0 data in detail, respectively. In this notebook, we call functions from the script to perform these preprocessing steps, resulting in a cleaner notebook that focuses solely on the subsetting process.
