AbstractModelling groundwater-surface water (GW-SW) interactions at scales of large river basins is a difficult challenge. Xu et al (2021) have completed such a modelling exercise for the 766,000 km2 Laurentian Great Lakes basin using a HydroGeoSphere (HGS) fully-integrated surface watergroundwater model accounting for hydrologic seasonality under monthly normal climatology. Many datasets are developed on a national basis, and development of the underlying HGS model data required synthesis of both Canadian and United States data sets. Most of the datasets are in the public domain; however; considerable effort is required to standardize the respective data. The objective of this Open File data release is to make the underlying data layers and the finite element mesh available for use by anyone interested. The data release consists of 16 folders of data layers, and attribute information for aspects of the HGS modelling platform inputs. Not all layers may be necessary to run the model in alternative groundwater modelling software. Details on the model results are available in Xu et al (2021).
