Summary

This dataset includes 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.

Purpose

Temperature 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 drying.
