Stream and air temperature data from the Willow, Rock, and Frazer watersheds of northern Nevada, USA, 2015-2016

Summary

These datasets include stream temperatures, air temperatures, and spatial location information from 167 temperature data loggers that were installed throughout the Willow/Rock/Frazer watersheds of northern Nevada between July 30 and August 14, 2015. One hundred twelve data loggers were installed in stream channels (some of which were dry), 50 data loggers were installed outside the stream channel to measure air temperature, and 5 data loggers were installed on ridgetops to measure air temperature across the watershed. Fifty-one air temperature data loggers and 97 stream temperature data loggers were recovered and downloaded in late July 2016.

Purpose

Data were collected to help us extract critical information on climate-sensitive patterns of flow permanence. We used information from paired stream and air temperature loggers as well as co-located stream temperature loggers with electrical resistors (in a separate dataset) as confirmatory sources of the timing of stream desiccation.
