This USGS data release represents supplemental tabular data for an annual groundwater discharge by evapotranspiration (ET) from areas of spring-fed riparian vegetation, Stump Spring and Hiko Springs, Clark County, Nevada, 2016-18. The raw ET dataset contained multiple data gaps that were simulated and gap-filled with the water-level model utility in SeriesSEE, a USGS developed Microsoft Excel addin. Continuous time-series data, including net radiation, sensible-heat flux, latent-heat flux, and ground-heat flux, from before and after the data gap(s) were used to simulate turbulent fluxes with multivariate regressions and the gramma transform, used for latent heat gaps after precipitation events. ET data were gap filled using methods outlined in A process to estimate net infiltration using a site-scale water-budget approach, Rainier Mesa, Nevada National Security Site, Nevada, 2002-05. Data used to simulate gap periods for Stump Spring and Hiko Springs were acquired from USGS ET stations 364555117412401 and 355846116160401, respectively. This release consists of the following: (1) inventory of latent-heat flux, sensible-heat flux gap-filled periods, and model goodness-of-fit, Stump Springs, Clark County, NV, 2016, (2) inventory of net radiation, latent-heat flux, sensible-heat flux, ground-heat flux gap-filled periods, and model goodness-of-fit, Hiko Springs, Clark County, NV, 2017-18, (3) gap-filled latent-heat flux and sensible-heat flux data, Stump Spring evapotranspiration station, Clark County, NV, 2016, and (4) gap-filled net radiation, latent-heat flux, sensible-heat flux, and ground-heat flux, Hiko Springs evapotranspiration station, Clark County, NV, 2017-18.
