Abstract

The 420 km 2 Mahantango Creek Watershed, within the Northern Appalachian Ridges and Valleys Province, is a subwatershed of the Susquehanna River, which flows to the Chesapeake Bay. Research on agricultural management and hydrologic processes controlling nonpoint source nutrient loss is conducted within a 7.3 km 2 subwatershed designated WE-38. The physical watershed description and history of monitoring and research activities contained herein and the data discussed in three companion papers are intended to facilitate the use and interpretation of archived databases on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service's Sustaining the Earth's Watersheds - Agricultural Research Data System (STEWARDS) Web site. Sources for regional geospatial data not maintained on STEWARDS are also identified.
