The combined effect of stream morphology, water discharge and heterogeneity of the hydraulic conductivity of stream-bed sediments on hyporheic exchange processes was aimed to be revealed. Hyporheic flow dynamics and their effects on dissolved oxygen were investigated in an heterogeneous and morphologically complex low-gradient sub-reach of River Bure, UK. The work was applied by combining field measurements with detailed numerical simulations. The data provided in this contribution contains: (1) Field data; Stream Water Discharge, stream velocity, floodplain water table, stratigrafic data for the sediment, and topographic data with surface and subsurface water dissolved oxygen concentrations, (2) Some part of Model data; particle set data from simulations, imposed water surface elevation boundaries for subsurface model, and supportive codes for data visualization and analysis (see details on README file).

This README file describes the data package accompanying the above publication in coherent fashion as introduced on the text of manuscript. 

Folders and Files: Enumerated lines of the list are the folders, lines designated by letters are the files. 

Data: Main Folder

Particle Set informations: Contains 19 files start with section (Meander, Plain, Pool), followed by subsurface filling of three realizations that is introduced in the above 			paper (Heterogeneous:het1,het2,het3, homogeneous:hom) and discharge conditions (0.2,0.5,0.8 cubic meter per second). All heterogeneous formations are include 0.5 discharge. Each 			file has Particle Index, for each particle path; coordinates of each particle interval and total residence times in minutes.
