Description: Effects of wildfire on water quantity and quality are issues of major concern. Much has been learned from previous research, although site specific data from both before and after wildfire are rare. The Entiat Experimental Forest (EEF) in central Washington State provides such a hydrologic record. In August 1970 a severe wildfire occurred following 10 years of stream gauging as part of a controlled land use experiment. A modified data collection program continued through 1977. Existing data from the EEF are available on the intemet. Data housed at the site include downloadable daily discharge, air temperature, humidity, precipitation, water temperature, 10-m DEMs, watershed boundaries, and gauge locations. These data are an archive for assessment of hydrologic response and model formulation, calibration, and testing. The EEF is being reinstrumented to investigate recovery from effects of the 1970 fire on water quantity, quality, and flow regime.

Keywords: Aquatic habitat, runoff and streamflow, semiarid hydrology, surface water quality, wildfire effects
