Riparian zones can strongly influence the exchange of nutrients between streams and their watersheds. Most riparian studies have been done in mesic watersheds, which differ significantly from arid-land watersheds hydrologically. The goals of our work were to determine the strength and direction of hydrologic linkages between stream and riparian zone, and to estimate the extent of uptake of streamwater N by riparian trees in Sycamore Creek, a Sonoran Desert stream. Br? and 15NH4+ were added simultaneously to the surface stream to trace water and N from stream to riparian zone. Br? concentrations in riparian wells installed downstream of the release point increased during the addition, demonstrating a strong hydrologic...

Field spectra were collected from the Kootenai River in northern Idaho during a tracer dye experiment on September 25, 2017, to assess the potential for inferring concentrations of Rhodamine WT dye from remotely sensed data. Reflectance measurements were made from a boat near the confluence with Ball Creek with the Kootenai River using an Analytical Spectral Devices FieldSpec3 spectroradiometer operated in reflectance mode. The Rhodamine WT dye concentration at each spectral measurement location was interpolated from field measurements of concentration obtained with a Turner Designs C3 submersible fluorometer (sonde) by pairing time stamps from the spectra with those from the sonde. This data release provides both...
