Science briefing: Western U.S. stream flow metric dataset

Documents and Media Posted on: July 09, 2015
Short summary of project that estimated mean annual flow, mean timing of runoff, and winter frequency of high flows for streams in six major river basins of the western U.S. under historical and future climate change scenarios. Document Type: Briefing Papers

Mean annual renewable water supply of the contiguous United States

Documents and Media Posted on: July 01, 2015
We estimated water supply across the contiguous 48 states for the period 1981-2010. Political, administrative, and land cover boundaries were mapped over the gridded water supply estimates to indicate the amount of water that becomes available in respective land areas.

Stream flow metrics for historical and future climate change scenarios

Projects Posted on: January 23, 2015
Climate change is projected to alter the flow regimes of streams and rivers, with consequences for physical processes and aquatic organisms. Our stream flow dataset makes it possible to study the effects of droughts, changes in snowpack, water resource impacts, and other hydrologic changes under historical and future climate change scenarios.
