Abstract. Soil moisture and precipitation have been monitored in a hydrometeorological network situated within the Brightwater Creek basin, east of Kenaston, Saskatchewan, since 2007. The majority of the prairie landscape is annually cropped with some sections in pasture. This agricultural region is ideal for remote sensing validation and calibration and, in conjunction with the flux tower situated within the network, hydrological model validation. Remote sensing validation collaborations have included ESA's Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity (SMOS) and NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP). The network was developed to capture soil moisture variation at two spatial scales, one high-resolution network installed over a 10km2 region and a second installed over 40km2. The networks are similar in design with three instrument depths for soil moisture and temperature, as well as precipitation measurement. The 2007–2017 dataset published in this paper has gone through a quality control review process, which involved both automated and manual processes. The dataset is limited to the summer months (May 1–Sept 30) due to the uncertainties and complexities of measurement in frozen soils and the freeze/thaw period each year. Data is available at https://dx.doi.org/10.20383/101.0116.

Short summary
Soil moisture and precipitation have been monitored in the Brightwater Creek basin, east of Kenaston, Saskatchewan, since 2007. Soil moisture, soil temperature, and precipitation data from the 35+ stations, from 2007–2017, are presented, along with processing details. Data from the network is used for remote sensing validation and calibration and, in conjunction with other instruments within the network, hydrological model validation.
