This data publication contains average daily sediment transport data recorded at eight locations in the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest watershed from 1994 to 2014. Four sediment samplers were placed at the bottom of four sub-watersheds flowing into Tenderfoot Creek. These sub-watersheds are Spring Park Creek, Sun Creek, Stringer Creek and Bubbling Creek. Two additional samplers were placed on Sun Creek above and below a logging road constructed in 2000, and two sediment samplers were placed on Tenderfoot Creek above and below the four sub-watersheds. Sun Creek and Spring Park Creek had experimental shelterwood harvests in 1999 and 2000. Portions of these units were prescribed burned between 2001 and 2003. Two adjacent sub-watersheds, Bubbling Creek and Stringer Creek, serve as control units for the silvicultural treatments (McCaughey et al. 2006).
