Small catchments free data

I will use this post to collect the information about data from catchments for a possible future use with the model GEOtop (or by JGrass-NewAGE).  What I am looking for are catchments as those referenced by Mirus et al (2009). However, the data referred in the paper, are, apparently, not all freely available. Anyone is invited to indicate catchments were similar data are available.

Here it is the list of catchments:
The Tarrawarra data set is a detailed set of hydrological data from a catchment experiment that aimed to investigate the spatial pattern of soil moisture at the small catchment scale. A variety of data was collected which we believe is (at least in 1997) unique in the high level of detail it provides and in the range of catchment conditions it covers.

Sleepers River (USA)
Sleepers River has one of the longest historical data bases and continuous research programs for a cold-region area in the United States. Hydrologic and energy data have been collected continuously since 1958 (Pionke and others, 1986). The site has been administered by the Agriculture Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (1957-1975), the Office of Hydrology of the National Weather Service (1966-1986) and the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) (1979 to present).

This website provides public access to the hillslope dataset collected from the Panola Mountain Research Watershed experimental hillslope during the period from January through June 2002 and briefly described in the WRR datanote publication.
