The dataset contains time series of dissolved oxygen dynamics and near-streambed light availability from selected riverine sites within the Hampshire Avon catchment (UK). Six rivers within sub-catchments of contrasting geology (clay, greensand, chalk) and associated river morphology were investigated. Data were obtained from field-based measurements in seasonal campaigns conducted between spring 2013 and winter 2014.

All data were generated by the authors. As time series containing physical parameters were generated, checks were made to ensure that each instrument was properly calibrated and serviced prior to each campaign to keep accuracy and precision within the manufacturer tolerances. Furthermore, the time series were screened for outliers caused by debris disturbing the sensor readings, out-of-water periods, and contamination by the users during concurrent activities on site. All data were checked to ensure reported values were above the detection limit of the respective sensors.
