ABSTRACT:

Wetted channel networks expand and contract throughout the year. Direct observation of this process can be made by multiple intensive surveys of a catchment throughout the year. Godsey et al. (2014) suggest that the extent of the wetted channel network scales with discharge at the outlet by a power law (L = αQ^β). Using this relationship, we developed a framework to assess variability in the extent of wetted channels as a function of beta, β, and the variability in streamflow, Q (Lapides et al. 2021). This resource includes the empirical basis for the study and data compiled from the literature and maps.

1 - Channel length survey data (csv files)
2 - Discharge time series data (csv files)
3 - Watershed metadata (csv file)
4 - Blueline network files (pdf, png, and shp files)

This collection includes all watersheds where at least three channel length surveys have been conducted and where a corresponding discharge time series dataset is available. The requirement of a minimum of three channel length surveys stems from the data requirements to find alpha, α, and β for the power law relationship between discharge and stream network length for headwater catchments (Godsey et al. 2014). Data for 14 watersheds worldwide are included, along with watershed metadata, reference maps, shapefiles and a composite of USGS blueline stream network imagery with terrain for watersheds of interest in the United States.

Methods used to process the datasets or create other assets in this collection are included in the abstracts or additional metadata for each of the four resources listed above. Python code used to process data, compute variables, and create graphics is available at: https://zenodo.org/record/4057320

1 - Channel length survey data
Created: Sept. 16, 2020, 3:04 p.m.
Authors: Leclerc, Christine D

ABSTRACT:

This directory includes channel length survey data (outlet discharge and surveyed wetted channel extent for each survey). These data were used, in conjunction with discharge data, to find the scaling factor (α) and scaling exponent (β) for the power function that relates wetted channel extent and discharge (L = αQ^β) reported in the metadata table. Resources associated with channel length include survey data, data ‘thieved’ plots, and studies that reported channel length survey data.

ABSTRACT:

Analysis of the USGS’s blue line network from 7.5’ topographic maps and how these persistent and intermittent stream network length extents compared to the length-duration curves that appear in Lapides et al. (Figure 2). Resources associated with blue line analysis include calculated values for average channel length, shapefiles derived from USGS TopoView maps, a composite image of all watersheds where blue line analysis has been applied, as well as network validation images. Only watersheds located in the U.S. are included in this analysis.

Blueline networks were extracted from the TopoView maps with Safe Software's FME program.

Variables without sources were calculated, as described in the Additional Metadata section below. Examples of calculated values include, q_avg_mm_per_day, beta, and l_avg_km.

ABSTRACT:

Wetted channel networks expand and contract throughout the year. Direct observation of this process can be made by multiple intensive surveys of a catchment throughout the year. Godsey et al. (2014) suggest that the extent of the wetted channel network scales with discharge at the outlet by a power law (L = αQ^β). Using this relationship, we developed a framework to assess variability in the extent of wetted channels as a function of β and the variability in streamflow Q (Lapides et al., In Review, https://eartharxiv.org/mc6np/). This resource constitutes the empirical basis for that study, a comprehensive dataset compiled from literature including:

1 - Channel length survey data (csv files)
2 - Discharge time series data (csv files)
3 - Watershed metadata (csv file)
4 - Blueline network files (pdf, png, and shp files)

This collection is comprehensive in that it includes all watersheds where at least three channel length surveys have been conducted and where a corresponding discharge time series dataset is available. The requirement of a minimum of three channel length surveys stems from the data requirements to find α and β for the power law relationship between discharge and stream network length for headwater catchments (Godsey et al., 2014). At present, data for 14 watersheds worldwide are included in the collection along with reference maps, watershed metadata, shapefiles and a composite of USGS blueline stream network imagery with terrain for watersheds of interest in the United States. Notably, this collection brings data from a variety of earth science agencies worldwide into a common, clearly labelled format.

1 - Channel length survey data
Created: Dec. 11, 2020, 5:57 p.m.
Authors: Leclerc, Christine D

ABSTRACT:

This directory includes channel length survey data (outlet discharge and surveyed wetted channel extent for each survey). These data were used, in conjunction with discharge data, to find the scaling factor (α) and scaling exponent (β) for the power function that relates wetted channel extent and discharge (L = αQ^β) reported in the metadata table. Resources associated with channel length include survey data, data ‘thieved’ plots from studies where channel length survey data was reported in plot format.
