The follwing observation data are provided for the research catchment Wernersbach, situated in Saxony, Germany:
- Temperature (Min, Max, Mean)
- Precipitation (uncorrected and corrected)
- Windpseed
- Vapour pressure (based on relative humidity)
- Global Radiation
- Runoff of the catchment
- Grass reference evaopotranspiration
For the period 1968 until 2019 monthly data and for the year 2017 daily data are provided. Data were checked on homogeneity and gap filled.

Furthermore, ET estimates from Eddy Covariance measurements at two towers are included. The tower DE-Tha is situated 5 km east of Wernersbach catchment (1997-2019, spruce forest) and the tower DE-Hzd is situated within the catchment (2010-2019, young oak forest).
