Soil-hydraulic property, soil depth, and soil saturation observations within the 2010 Fourmile Canyon Fire area, Colorado, USA following the 2013 Colorado floods

November 9, 2016

This record contains scientific data characterizing soil properties and hydrologic response to rainfall associated with historic rainfall during September 2013 in the Colorado Front Range, USA. Data include soil depth, soil-hydraulic properties of field-saturated hydraulic conductivity and sorptivity, weathered bedrock hydraulic properties including field-saturated hydraulic conductivity and sorptivity, and soil saturation from automated sensors installed at various depths. Data sites include burned (fire-affected) and unburned (not affected by the 2010 wildfire).
