This data is part of a project studying the effects of wildfire on the Illilouette Creek Basin, a watershed within Yosemite National Park. Three temporary weather stations were installed under distinct types of vegetation cover (A is forested, B is shrub-dominated, and C is in a wetland). Each station measures air temperature, relative humidity, rainfall (the rain gage is not heated, so only the portion of snowfall that melts within the gage is measured), wind speed and direction, solar radiation, and both soil moisture and temperature at three depths. These measurements are recorded every 10 minutes, beginning in the summer of 2015. Snow depth was estimated at each station four times per day during each winter using time lapse imagery. In addition, HOBO temperature and relative humidity sensors were attached to nearby trees in order to provide backup data and to capture temperatures above the snowpack during high snow years. The stations are located within an area that burned most recently in 2004 and 2017. Metadata files are included within each individual resource.
