Summary & Purpose

The Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW) and Critical Zone Observatory (CZO) is the site of over 60 years of research aimed at understanding water cycling in a semi-arid climate. Meteoric water lines (MWLs) are frequently used to interpret hydrologic processes necessitating the development of local meteoric water lines (LMWLs). At the RCEW-CZO, a RCEW LMWL and a groundwater recharge RCEW LMWL (RCEW LMWL - GWR) were developed with this dataset using orthogonal regression from primarily three different elevations (1203m, 1585m, 2043m). The RCEW LMWL (δ18O = 7.41 δ2H - 3.05) is different from the RCEW LMWL-GWR (δ18O = 8.21 δ2H + 9.69). The RCEW LMWLs compare favorably to LMWLs developed for the region and climate. Surface, spring and subsurface water data sets within the RCEW-CZO are also reported.
