This data release provides modeled estimates of gross primary productivity, ecosystem respiration, and gas exchange coefficients for 356 streams and rivers across the United States. The release also includes the model input data and alternative input data, model fit and diagnostic information, spatial data for the modeled sites (catchment boundaries and site point locations), and potential predictors of metabolism such as discharge and light availability. The data are organized into these items: Site data - Site identifiers, details, and quality indicators - Table with 1 row per site (tab-delimited file) Spatial data a. Site coordinates - One shapefile of points for all sites combined (.shp, .shx, .dbf, and .prj files) b. Site catchment [...]
