Roberts, Derek; Watanabe, Shohei; Schladow, S. Geoffrey (2018), Data for analysis of snowmelt timing as a determinant of inflow mixing in Lake Tahoe, v3, UC Davis, Dataset, https://doi.org/10.25338/B8QG63
This dataset includes data files pertinent to the manuscript, "Snowmelting timing as a determinant of inflow mixing," accepted for publication in Water Resources Research in January 2018. Included data were used for an analysis of relative stream-lake conditions as they pertain to winter climate conditions and the subsequent mixing of snowmelt inflows into the lake.
Included with each of the six files listed below is a [FILENAME]_Reference.txt file with details on data collection, curation, and flagging.
TERC_Hourly_Homewood_Nearshore_2009_2017.txt - hourly nearshore temperature and calculated density near Homewood, CA, Lake Tahoe (1 November 2009 - 1 August 2017).
TERC_Annual_Tahoe_OnsetStrat.txt - annual timing of onset of stratification at Lake Tahoe, CA/NV (1968-2017).
NASA_JPL_TahoeBuoy3_WaterTemp_at2m_2009_2017.txt - hourly mid-lake water temperature at Lake Tahoe (1 November 2009 - 1 August 2017).
Blackwood_Hourly_StreamData_2009_2017.txt - hourly Blackwood Creek temperature, discharge, conductivity, and density (1 November 2009 - 1 August 2017).
Associated meteorological and watershed data:
CSSL_Annual_SnowDepth_1960_2017.txt - annual snow accumulation and maximum depth as collected at Central Sierra Snow Laboratory, Soda Springs, CA (1960-2017).
NCEI_Daily_TahoeCity_TempPrecip_1960_2017.txt - long-term daily maximum and minimum air temperature, and precipitation in Tahoe City, CA (1960-2017).
TahoeBasin_AirTemp_ShortwaveRadiation_2009_2017.txt - aggregated hourly air temperature and incoming shortwave radiation (1 November 2009 - 1 August 2017).
Details of dataset-specific methodology, curation, and flagging are included in [FILENAME]_Reference.txt files included with the [FILENAME].txt data files.
All files contain continuous data (no gaps) aggreagated and curated using interpolation, gap-filling, and modeling techniques described in the [FILENAME]_Reference.txt files included with each data file.
