Meteorological measurements from five locations within the Badger Wash study area near Mack, Colorado (ver. 2.0, April 2023)

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

These data are records collected from an automated weather station and four stand-alone tipping bucket rain gauges each with their own data logger that were in operation between February 2005 and December 2022 in the Badger Wash Study Area near Mack, Colorado as part of a larger project funded by the Bureau of Land Management. These files are hourly-interval data from the automated weather station with meteorological parameters of air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, wind gusts, photon flux density and rainfall as well as from a soil pit with temperature and soil moisture measurements at 5, 10, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 cm deep. The standalone tipping-bucket rain gauge data which records the time of each tip were processed to mimic the hourly interval records of the automated weather station and included rain intensity parameters as well. A separate table created by the data logger in the automated weather station recorded the time of each tip of the its tipping bucket rain gauge those data were processed in the same way as for the standalone tipping buckets. The Badger Wash study area contains paired grazed and ungrazed watersheds which were originally studied from 1954 to 1965 (Lusby 1979). Data collection was conducted using automated weather stations physically visited and maintained by scientists from the Southwest Biological Science Center. These data span the time period from 2005 through 2022.
