Daily cycles in solar flux, snowmelt, transpiration, groundwater, and streamflow at Sagehen and Independence Creeks, Sierra Nevada, USA

Hydrometerological and ecohydrological time series from Sagehen Creek and Independence Creek, Sierra Nevada, USA, illustrating hydrological responses to daily cycles in snowmelt and evapotranspiration forcing.

Data include 30-minute time series of

  • weather variables,

  • sap flow fluxes,

  • groundwater levels (in two riparian transects of shallow groundwater wells),

  • and stream stages (at 12 sites spanning a 500-meter elevation gradient),

and daily time series of

  • temperature, precipitation, and snow water equivalent at three nearby snow telemetry stations

  • diel cycle index values for groundwater levels and stream stages,

  • and MODIS normalized difference snow index (NDSI) and enhanced vegetation index (EVI2) values averaged over selected subcatchments.

Google Earth Engine scripts for extracting the MODIS data are also provided.
