Methodology

Methods: 

Hourly and daily totals are collected from recording climate stations on the upper Bisley Climate tower by the USGS, the lower Bisley climate tower and the roof of the Sabana Field station laboratory building by the USFS, and at the Sabana river discharge station by the USGS. Daily rainfall totals are collected manually nearly every week day morning at the Bisley gate, Catalina work center, as well as at the Sabana Field station and the lower Bisley climate tower using Rainwise rain gages. Weekly bulk samples are collected every Tuesday AM on the lower Bisley tower along with weekly throughfall in the Bisley Experimental watersheds. Daily totals are only included in data set from recording stations. Weekly (i.e. Tuesday to Tuesday) and monthly totals are calculated from the sum of the totalizing stations.
