Summary

This database contains hourly water and air temperature data from 120 site locations within 17 watersheds in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia between June 23,2012 and October 25, 2016. The database includes three separate table files (i.e, entities) in csv format: 1) Water temperature data, 2) air temperature data, and 3) site location data. All temperature data were collected using HOBO Pro V2 thermographs (accuracy = 0.2 degrees Celsius, drift = <0.1 degrees Celsius per year per year). These raw data were summarized to mean daily air and water temperatures for the analysis used in Johnson et al. Johnson, Z.C., Snyder, C.D. and Hitt, N.P., 2017, Landform features and seasonal precipitation predict shallow groundwater influence [...]
