Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER)/HBR002: Hubbard Brook StreamflowEntry ID: LTER_HBR002
Abstract: LTER - Long-Term Ecological Research Program/Hubbard Brook
Experimental Forest (HBEF)
Daily streamflow data have been collected at the gauged watersheds at
the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest since 1956. Instantaneous and
interval streamflow data for varying times (one minute to 12 hours)
have also been determined for the watersheds. Each gauge consists of
a 90 deg. or a 120 deg. ... sharp-crested V-notch weir. Water level in
the V-notch stilling basin is recorded continuously on Stephens A-35
streamflow recorders. The time-gauge height pairs are converted to
streamflow rate at each digitized time and then to streamflow for the
interval between each pair of digitized times. The streamflow rates
are then integrated to daily and monthly totals.
The Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest (HBEF) is a 3,160 hectare
reserve dedicated to the long-term study of forest and stream
ecosystems. Located in the White Mountain National Forest of New
Hampshire, the HBEF was established in 1955 and is operated by the
USDA Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station.
