Abstract

RHESSys version 5.18.2 model for Watershed 14 of the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory LTER near Franklin, NC. Watershed 14 is a 0.6-km2 forested headwater catchment that serves as a forested reference catchment, and has been undisturbed since 1927. For more information, see the Coweeta Basin History Map (https://coweeta.uga.edu/sitehistory/basin).

This RHESSys model was developed using 10-m digital elevation model and vegetation density (i.e. leaf area index) provided by the NSF- and USFS-funded Coweeta Long-term Ecological Research Site and Experimental Forest. Soils data were acquired from USDA SSURGO web services using EcohydroLib (https://github.com/selimnairb/EcohydroLib), which was also used to assemble all required input datasets. RHESSysWorkflows (https://github.com/selimnairb/RHESSysWorkflows) was used to create RHESSys-specific input files (e.g. world file, flow table, and soil and vegetation parameters). See metadata.txt for more detailed workflow metadata, including command history, as well as data provenance information.

Datasets:

Streamflow gage location: Coweeta LTER
Digital Elevation Model (DEM): Custom DEM from Coweeta LTER LIDAR
Landcover: Custom landcover from Coweeta LTER data
Surface soil texture: USDA SSURGO data served by U.S. Department of Agriculture WFS and SOAP tabular web services
Vegetation leaf area index (LAI): Minimum LAI, peak LAI, and phenology derived from MODIS MOD 15 LAI and applied to biome types derived from landcover.
Climate data (temperature, precipitation): Coweeta LTER data served by CLIMDB/HYDRODB8. Climate station in close proximity to watershed.
Streamflow: Coweeta LTER data served by CLIMDB/HYDRODB8
