Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed Data


The Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW) established in 1960 is an “outdoor hydrological laboratory” to investigate hydrological processes the Interior Northwest and Great Basin regions of the United States. Various types of data have been collected at RCEW since its establishment including precipitation, climate, soil temperature and moisture, snow pack, stream flow and water quality. The Northwest Watershed Research Center (NWRC) collects this data for in-house studies, but also make the data publicly available to anyone that would like to conduct their own research.

The data is available for public access at our public file storage here.

We have assembled a Google Earth file below that lays out the boundaries of the watershed and our various instrumentation locations.  We recommend downloading this file in order to help you download data for the appropriate locations.  The current zipped file is located here
