Data used for the analysis of dominant controls on evapotranspiration from the BERMS Old Jack Pine site, Saskatchewan

Description: Land surface schemes can be applied to simulate evapotranspiration. This dataset contains the driving meteorological data, and various diagnostic data, from one of the Boreal Ecosystem Research and Monitoring Sites in central Saskatchewan, known as the Old Jack Pine site. In Nazarbakhsh et al. (2019, Hydrological Processes, https://doi.org/10.1002/hyp.13674) we used these data to drive two Canadian land surface schemes (CLASS and CLASS–CTEM). We used half–hourly values of shortwave radiation, longwave radiation, precipitation, air temperature, specific humidity, wind speed, and atmospheric pressure to drive the models. Flux tower estimates of evapotranspiration, with energy balance closure applied, were used to assess the performance of the models on daily and monthly timescales for years 2000 to 2010. We also used soil moisture (measured with Campbell Scientific CS615 probes, which measure liquid water content only) and soil temperature observations for years 2000 to 2010 to assess the models’ performance during the snowmelt and soil–thaw periods in the spring.
