Dataset description

The water level and rainfall data were collected from three different sites in Sebangau Tropical Peatland, Kalimantan, Indonesia. The sites were forested peatland (Forested), drained peatland with ditch dam (Blocked), and drained peatland without dam (Drained). Hydrological monitoring was conducted at the three tropical peatland sites over a 6-month period between 22nd of August 2019 and 17th January 2020. There is an Automatic Weather Station (AWS) installed to capture meteorological condition in Drained and Blocked. Another AWS was installed in Forested. Both AWSs recorded rainfall, temperature, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, and relative humidity, allowing the calculation of potential evapotranspiration (PET based on the Penman-Monteith equation. Drained had three water-level loggers, two ditch level loggers, and seven manual wells. Blocked had four water-level loggers, two ditch level loggers, and seven manual wells. There were no manual monitoring wells in Forested due to access restrictions for routine data collection; therefore, six vented loggers were used to monitor water tables, recording at a three-hour interval too. There were twelve manual water-table readings at automatic wells in Forested as part of calibration checks.
