This data release contains bootstrap values of mean-annual total dissolved solids (TDS) loads predicted by a SPARROW model for individual stream reaches in the Upper Colorado River Basin watershed in the predict.txt file. Also included are the input variables required to execute the model, including dissolved solids sources, landscape characteristics, and calibration data from water quality monitoring stations in the input.txt file. Further details on model construction and results are described in Miller et al. (2017, https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20175009).
