Title: Differential concentration discharge for the upper and lower reaches of the East River Watershed, Colorado

Abstract

This dataset captures the difference in concentration over the difference in discharge across upper and lower reaches of the East River watershed for 2015 and 2016 water years. The East River is part of the Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area (WFSFA) located in the Upper Colorado River Basin, United States. Herein, the upper reach is defined as the segment between EAQ (East Above Quigley) and EBC (East Below Copper), and the lower reach is defined as the segment between EBC and PH (Pump House). The overall purpose of the dataset is to provide a better accounting of the gains, losses or fractional solute turnover between sampling stations. Compiled data for the two segments (EAQ to EBC and EBC to PH) are provided in two Excel files, and the same data are provided in csv format in the corresponding zip files.

Project Location:
The East River (ER) is a snow‐dominated, headwater basin of the Upper Colorado River Basin (UCRB) located in the western United States. The ER is the designated testbed of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area (WFSFA). Through WFSFA, observational networks have been established to measure stream discharge and precipitation chemistry.The ER is considered representative of many snow‐dominated headwaters of the Rocky Mountains. The study domain encompasses nearly 85 square km, a 1.4‐km vertical drop in elevation (4,120 to 2,760 m) and pristine alpine, subalpine, montane, and riparian ecosystems. The ER contains high‐energy mountain streams to low‐energy meandering floodplains and is eroding primarily into the Cretaceous, carbon‐rich, marine shale of the Mancos Formation.
