Data set: Weather, snow, and streamflow data from four western juniper-dominated experimental catchments in southwestern Idaho, USA, Ag Data Commons, USDA Agricultural Library, http://dx.doi.org/10.15482/USDA.ADC/1254010.

Interpretive Summary: Data set on weather, snow, stream, topographic, and vegetation data from the South Mountain Experimental Catchments from water years 2007-2013 (10-1-2007 to 9-30-2013). The data provide detailed information on the weather and hydrologic response for four highly instrumented catchments in the late stages of woodland encroachment. Hourly data from six meteorological stations and four weirs have been carefully processed and quality checked, are serially complete, and ideal for hydrologic, ecosystem, and biogeochemical modeling. Topographic and vegetation data, as well as stream and drainage area delineations are Lidar-derived. This study site was established in 2007 as a collaborative, long-term research laboratory to address the impacts of western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis Hook) encroachment and treatments in the interior Great Basin region of the western USA. Data are available from the Ag Data Commons, and the USDA Agricultural Library, http://dx.doi.org/10.15482/USDA.ADC/1254010.
