Short summary
This paper presents the results of 272 rainfall simulation experiments conducted at 23 semiarid locations in Arizona and Nevada over a 10-year period. The scope of this data set combined with state of the art rainfall simulation equipment makes it particularly valuable to advance our understanding of basic hydrological and biological processes that drive soil erosion on arid rangelands.
