This paper describes the data set from the 6540-km2 Goulburn River experimental catchment in New South Wales, Australia. Data have been archived from this experimental catchment since its inception in September 2002. Land use in the northern half of the catchment is predominantly cropping and grazing on basalt-derived soils, with the south being cattle and sheep grazing on sandstone-derived soils; only the floodplains are cleared of trees in the south. Monitoring sites are mainly concentrated in the nested Merriwa (651 km2) and Krui (562 km2) subcatchments in the northern half of this experimental catchment with a few monitoring sites located in the south. The data set comprises soil temperature and moisture profile measurements from 26 locations; meteorological data from two automated weather stations (data from a further three stations are available from other sources) including precipitation, atmospheric pressure, air temperature and relative humidity, wind speed and direction, soil heat flux, and up- and down-welling short-and long-wave radiation; streamflow observations at five nested locations (data from a further three locations are available from other sources); a total of three surface soil moisture maps across a 40 km x 50 km region in the north from ∼200 measurement locations during intensive field campaigns; and a high-resolution digital elevation model (DEM) of a 175-ha microcatchment in the Krui catchment. These data are available on the World Wide Web at http://www.sasmas.unimelb.edu.au.
