The Kings River Experimental Watersheds (KREW) project is a long term forest management study that began in the early 2000's. The KREW project is comprised of eight primary headwater catchments of the Kings River Basin within the Sierra National Forest, California. Two additional catchments (P300 and B200) were added in 2005 and 2006. The ten catchments are clustered into two groups, Providence and Bull. Providence catchments (P300, P301, P303, P304, and D102) ranged in size from 49 to 461 hectares, and had mean elevations ranging from 1,782 to 1,979 meters. Bull catchments (B200, B201, B203, B204, and T003) ranged in size from 53 to 474 hectares, and had mean elevations ranging from 2,122 to 2,373 meters. All catchments, except T003, had a dominant southwest aspect, whereas T003 faced primarily southeast. This data publication contains both the daily and 15 minute stream discharge data collected at these catchments from 2002 to 2015.
