New Mexico Water Science Center

Data and Tools

The New Mexico Water Science Center collects, analyzes, and distributes data on a wide variety of water-related issues and resources. Much of our data are publicly available through the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS), but additional datasets and analytical tools are available here.

New Mexico Water Science Center Sediment Laboratory

New Mexico Water Science Center Sediment Laboratory

The NMWSC Sediment Laboratory routinely performs sediment analyses for suspended-sediment concentration, determines percentages of sand and finer materials, and completes particle-size analyses for suspended and bed-material sediment.

Input and Output Data Metadata, Step 2: Input and output data for pre-/post-calibration of streamflow for nine near-native subbasins

This dataset contains input parameter and data files, as well as output files for simulations prior to (pre-calibration) and after calibration (post-calibration) of streamflow parameters for nine near-native subbasins. Simulated and observed streamflow for nine near-native subbasins are included for parts of the Upper Rio Grande Basin in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and northern M

Input and Output Data for the Application of the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) to Simulate Near-Native Streamflow in the Upper Rio Grande Basin

This data release contains input and output data from hydrologic simulations of naturalized or near-native streamflow conditions in the Upper Rio Grande Basin (URGB) in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and northern Mexico by using the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS). The Upper Rio Grande Basin PRMS model was calibrated in a three step process by (1) calibrating solar rad

Input and Output Data Metadata, Step 1: Input and output data for pre-/post-calibration simulations of solar radiation and potential evapotranspiration for nine near-native subbasins and calibrated subareas

This dataset contains input parameter and data files, as well as output files for simulations before calibration (pre-calibration) and after calibration (post-calibration) of solar radiation and potential evapotranspiration (ET) parameters. Simulated solar radiation and potential ET for nine near-native subbasins and three selected subareas [16, 71, 124] are included for par

Input and Output Data Metadata, Step 3: Input and output data pre-/post-distribution of calibrated parameters to non-calibrated areas in the Upper Rio Grande Basin

This dataset contains input parameter and data files, as well as output files for simulations prior to the distribution of parameters from near-native subbasins to uncalibrated hydrologic response units (HRUs) (pre-distribution) and after parameters are distributed to HRUs (post-distribution). Simulated and observed streamflow for sites along the mainstem of the Rio Grande River are

Input and Output Data used to Compare Storm Runoff Models for a Small Watershed in an Urban Metropolitan Area, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Three separate hydrologic models were used to simulate storm runoff in the Hahn Arroyo Watershed, an urbanized watershed with concrete lined channels in the northeastern quadrant of Albuquerque, New Mexico that exhibits flashy, monsoonal-driven, storm runoff events. This data release contains the input and output files associated with the hydrologic simulations of each of the following mo
