    The Oracle Ridge field site was chosen as a mid-elevation field site for the Santa Catalina Mountains to complement the high elevation Marshall Gulch field site at 2400 meters and the lower elevation Biosphere 2 Desert field site at 1100 meters. The site consists of an upper, middle, and lower sub-site which range from 2000 - 2300 meters. The catchment drainage area is 1.09 km2. The catchment is east oriented with slopes between 7 and 44 degrees. The vegetation transitions seen across this site is ponderosa pine to pinyon-juniper-oak transition.
