Title: Synoptic Sampling Program GIS data.
Abstract: Coweeta LTER researchers sampled fifty-eight stream sites in the Upper Little Tennessee River Basin in February and June of 2009. Sites were selected to represent the range of land cover and land use within the basin. Samples were taken over three days of stable weather and discharge during periods of baseflow. They were used to characterize conditions across the basin during the growing and the non-growing seasons without the influence of elevated discharge. The GIS data presented was used to both help in selecting the 58 sites. The GIS files are split between raster and vector files. The files are in .zip archives. There are text files with information about each GIS in the .zip files.
