ABSTRACT:

This resource contains a RHESSys model of watershed 14 at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory. This model was created using RHESSysWorkflows (https://github.com/selimnairb/RHESSysWorkflows).

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.

Streamflow gage location: Coweeta LTER
Digital Elevation Model (DEM): Custom DEM from Coweeta LTER LIDAR
Landcover: Custom landcover from Coweeta LTER data

Climate data (temperature, precipitation): Coweeta LTER data served by CLIMDB/HYDRODB8. Climate station in close proximity to watershed.

ABSTRACT:

RHESSys version 5.18.2 model for Ellerbe Creek at Club Blvd, in Durham, NC (West Ellerbe Creek; WEC hereafter). WEC is a headwater watershed composed of urbanized land cover (36% impervious area) in Durham, North Carolina. The WEC is an order of magnitude larger with a drainage area of 15-km2. Continuous streamflow stage and discharge data are available from the USGS (gage ID 0208675010). Soils in the watershed range from sandy loam to silt loam (near riparian areas) and are characterized as being moderately well drained to somewhat poorly drained (near riparian areas). Located in the Piedmont physiographic province, Ellerbe Creek flows into Falls Lake, a water supply reservoir for Raleigh, NC.

This RHESSys model was developed using high-resolution data from Durham County Stormwater Services as well as U.S. EPA (see below). 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.

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.

ABSTRACT:

RHESSys version 5.18.2 model for Dead Run 5 watershed (DR5) in Baltimore County, near Catonsville, MD. DR5 is a Piedmont headwater watershed composed of 1.5-km2 of urbanized land (40% impervious area) developed before contemporary stormwater regulations were enacted. Soils in the DR5 watershed are mostly silt loam and are characterized as being well drained to poorly drained (i.e. riparian areas). The study watershed lies within the greater Dead Run watershed, which is a 14-km2 sub-watershed of the 171.5-km2 Gwynns Falls watershed, draining into the Chesapeake Bay at Baltimore Harbor. Gwynns Falls serves as a main study site of the BES LTER. Continuous streamflow stage and discharge data for DR5 are available from a U.S. Geological Survey stream gauge (USGS gage ID 01589312).

This RHESSys model was developed using high-resolution local datasets provided by the NSF-funded Baltimore Ecosystem Study Long-Term Ecological Research Site (BES LTER). EcohydroLib (https://github.com/selimnairb/EcohydroLib) was used to assemble input datasets (see below) . RHESSysWorkflows (https://github.com/selimnairb/RHESSysWorkflows) was used to create RHESSys input files (e.g. world file, flow table, and soil and vegetation parameters).
