This data release includes meteorological and soil information collected from calendar years 2015 to 2021 (water years 2016 to 2021) that include air temperature, soil temperature, soil moisture and solar radiation monitored at a site in the Black Creek subwatershed near Harlan, Allen County, Indiana (USGS 411228084541703 MET STATION WEST OF BULL RAPIDS RD NR HARLAN, IN). Meteorological and soil monitoring was done in coordination with monitoring of flow, suspended sediment, and nutrients in overland flow and subsurface-tile flow to support understanding of factors affecting nutrient and sediment loads at paired U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) edge-of-field (EOF) agricultural sites. Black Creek is a tributary of the Maumee River which flows into the western Lake Erie basin, one of the Great Lakes. Time-series data and information for the instruments used for monitoring were compiled as separate comma delimited files.
