Daily evaporation, precipitation, streamflow and maximum and minimum temperature for 431 MOPEX catchments and other catchment properties such as drainage area, elevation and slope used to estimate catchment scale groundwater recharge, deep storage and vegetation water use efficiency. Geospatial catchment properties were derived from 90 m SRTM elevation dataset.

CONTENT: Catchment properties: catchment_properties_247.xlsx Mean elevation snd slope: elevation_slope_mopex431.xlsx Catchment boundaries: Catchments.zip Daily Evaporation time series: EVAP.zip Daily hydrologic time series: MOPEX.zip ----------------------------------------------------------------- DAILY MOPEX HYDROLOGIC TIME SERIES This zip file contains daily time series of hydrologic data. The precipitation is processed in NWS Hydrology Laboratory. The Potential Evaporation is based on NOAA Evaporation Atlas (Farnsworth, et al., 1982). The streamflow is obtained from USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) (available at http://water.usgs.gov/nwis): Col. 1: date (yyyymmdd) 2: mean areal precipitation (mm) 3: climatic potential evaporation (mm) (based NOAA Freewater Evaporation Atlas) 4: daily streamflow discharge (mm) 5: daily maximum air temperature (Celsius) 6: daily minimum air temperature (Celsius) Time period: 1948 2003 File names: GAGENUMBER.dly where GAGENUMBER is a USGS gage number. The ZIPS directory contains zipped time series data. These are orgainized by USGS gage numbers. Data were downloaded from: ftp://hydrology.nws.noaa.gov/pub/gcip/mopex/US_Data/Us_438_Daily/ ----------------------------------------------------------------- DAILY EVAPORATION TIME SERIES North American Regional Reanalysis (NARR) data were obtained from the http://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov/data/narr/ and some description can be found at http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/mmb/rreanl/. citation: Mesinger F, DiMego G, Kalnay E, Mitchell K, Shafran PC, Ebisuzaki W, Jovic D, Woollen J, Rogers E, Berbery EH, Ek MB, Fan Y, Grumbine R, Higgins W, Li H, Lin Y, Manikin G, Parrish D, and Shi W (2006). North American Regional Reanalysis, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, 87(3), 343-360, doi:10.1175/BAMS-B7-3-343. Time period: 1979 2008 Temporal resolution: daily Temporal resolution (original): 3 hours Spatial resolution: 32 km The reanalysis data were re-sampled to higher resolution (~6 km) and spatially averaged for each catchment and then averaged for each day. Derived data are located in the directory NARR/EVAP/daily/ at the ftp server ftp://voda.hwr.arizona.edu/mopex/. There is 431 files in the directory and the name of each file is USGS gage number with extension det. Each text file contains 3 columns: 1: date (yyyymmdd) based on Local Time 2: EVP:sfc:kpds=57,1,0:0-24hr acc:winds are N/S: Evaporation [mm/day] 3: PEVAP:sfc:kpds=228,1,0:0-24hr acc:winds are N/S: Potential evaporation [mm/day] File names: GAGENUMBER.det where GAGENUMBER is a USGS gage number.
