This data set is predominantly sourced from the National Water Quality Monitoring Council (https://www.waterqualitydata.us/portal) and contains water quality data for the United States as well as climate and other ancillary data. This data was used to develop a model to explain groundwater dissolved organic carbon concentrations in the manuscript "Changes in global groundwater organic carbon driven by climate change and urbanization". Units for variables are included in the file "Units for Variables".
