This repository is a supplement to the paper Fürst et al. (2020). Rosalia: an experimental research site to study hydrological processes in a forest catchment (submitted in August 2020 to Earth System Science Data (ESSD).

Experimental watersheds have a long tradition as research sites in hydrology and have been used as far back as the late 19th and early 20th century. The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) has been operating the experimental research forest site called “Rosalia” with an area of 950 ha since 1875 to support and facilitate research and education. Recently, BOKU researchers from various disciplines extended the “Rosalia” instrumentation towards a full ecological-hydrological experimental watershed. The overall objective is to implement a multi-scale, multi-disciplinary observation system that facilitates the study of water, energy and solute transport processes in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum.

This repository contains the datasets collected by a monitoring network of 4 discharge gauging stations, 7 rain-gauges, together with observations of air and water temperature, relative humidity and conductivity. In four profiles, soil water content and temperature are recorded in different depths. In 2019, additionally a program to collect isotopic data in precipitation and discharge was started. On one site, also Nitrate, TOC and turbidity are monitored. All data collected since 2015, including in total 56 high resolution time series data (10 min sampling interval), are provided to the scientific community.

Updates are planned annually, as soon as the raw data of the previous year are checked for plausibility.
