Virtual Watershed Model Simulations for Typified Prairie Watersheds in High Elevation Grasslands

Description: The dataset is comprised of inputs to and outputs from the Cold Regions Hydrological Model (CRHM) when it was run as a virtual model of the High Elevation Grasslands class, as defined by Wolfe et al. (2019). These watersheds represented typified prairie watersheds based on physiogeography and coherent response to environmental change. Model parameters were informed by the results of Wolfe et al. (2019). The .prj files necessary to run the virtual models are included in the dataset. Climate forcing data are from the Adjusted and Homogenized Canadian Climate Dataset from a cohort of stations contained within each watershed class and cover a period from 1960-2006. There are a series of climate sensitivity scenarios that include applying a delta method to the original climate data (i.e., 1°C increments of warming, and -20%, +10%, +20% and +30% of precipitation). Model output includes hourly catchment outflow, rainfall, snowfall, snow sublimation and snow water equivalent for the baseline and each scenario.
