Abstract

This dataset includes tipping bucket rain gauge and ephemeral stream stage data from Mohave and Yuma Wash

Locations of each measurement are included in locations.txt

Background: Details about the monitoring sites are available in Faulconer (2015). Thresholds for runoff generation in ephemeral streams with varying morphology in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, USA. MS Thesis, Colorado State University https://mountainscholar.org/handle/10217/166929

Sensors: Rain gauges were TE525 and TB4 tipping buckets attached to Campbell Scientific loggers and RG3-M tipping buckets with Onset HOBO pendant event loggers
Stage sensors were In-Situ Inc. Rugged Troll 100 unvented pressure transducers.

Stage data included here were adjusted for barometric pressure and partially offset adjusted to bring no flow stage closer to zero at the beginning of the time series. Most values in each time series are
sensor noise, which is +/- 2 cm. Stream flow is only when stage rises >2cm above background stage. Background stage values can drift, so absolute stage should not be compared between sites or between events.

Note, sensors may have periods of missing data due to sensor failures.
