Interpretive Summary: We describe long term lysimeter data collected at the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW). The length of record is over 15 years for lysimeters at two sites representing different soil and climatic conditions These data are practically unique in terms of the terrain (i.e., semiarid rangeland at different elevations)and the length of record. They provide a record of how plant water use varied at different locations over a 15 year time span. In addition to measuring changes in total soil water, soil water content profiles and soil temperature profiles were measured within or adjacent to the lysimeters and are reported in accompanying reports. These data are available to the public via the USDA-ARS Northwest Watershed Research Center anonymous ftp site ftp.nwrc.ars.usda.gov.

Technical Abstract: We describe long term lysimeter data collected at the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW). The length of record is over 15 years for lysimeters at two sites representing different soil and climatic conditions These data describe changes in soil water during the snow-free season. In addition to measuring changes in total soil water, soil water content profiles and soil temperature profiles were measured within or adjacent to the lysimeters and reported in accompanying reports. These data are available to the public via the USDA-ARS Northwest Watershed Research Center anonymous ftp site ftp.nwrc.ars.usda.gov.
