Description

If data are used in publication, we request that you please cite: Gordon, B. L., Paige, G. B., Miller, S. N., Claes, N., & Parsekian, A. D. (2020). Field scale quantification indicates potential for variability in return flows from flood irrigation in the high altitude western US. Agricultural Water Management, 232, 106062 Readme: The included files are: Calculated Flow_NoLosses, Calculated_Losses, Calculated_Return_Flows, Crop_Growth_Cruve, ET_Not_Interpolated, Precipitation, Raw_Meteorological, and the readme. Included databases are: GIS information based on Trimble GPS, Raw Flow Data, including pressure transducer data and developed rating curves, Geophysical data, including Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, and Ground Penetrating Radar, and Scintillometry data, including raw downloads and footprint calculations. All the data (except GIS) are in tab delimited ASCII files. GIS data are in standard formats, most site specific information including soils, meadow delineation, instrumentation, etc. can be found in the site_information file. Flow data (Calculated_Flow, Calculated_Losses, Calculated_Return_Flows) were obtained using developed rating curves at each site, where each stilling well was instrumented with a pressure transducer (Level TROLL 500 Data Logger, In-Situ, USA) and manual flow measurements consisting of 25+ individual points for each measurement were made using an electromagnetic current meter (MF Pro, OTT Hydromet, USA). ET data include both measurements from a Large Aperture Scintillometer (LAS MKII, Kipp & Zonen, NLD) and from Penman-Monteith Calculations performed on raw meteorological data collected on site. For Penman-Monteith, we include both raw values and values modified using a crop coefficient from Pochop et al. (1992). Precipitation data were collected using a tipping bucket rain gauge (Rain Collector II, Davis Instruments, USA). All data (except the ET data for the scintillometer) are from May 2015 to October 2015; the ET data from the scintillometer are from June 2015 to October 2015.
