This data release contains the standard statistical suite (version 1.0) daily streamflow performance benchmark results for the National Hydrologic Model Infrastructure application of the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (NHM-PRMS) version 1 "byObs" calibration with Muskingum routing computed at streamflow benchmark locations defined by Foks and others (2022). Model error was determined by evaluating predicted daily mean streamflow versus observed daily mean streamflow using various statistics; the Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency (NSE), the Kling-Gupta efficiency (KGE), the logNSE, the Pearson correlation coefficient, the Spearman correlation coefficient, the ratio of the standard deviation, the percent bias, the percent bias in flow duration curve midsegment slope, the percent bias in the flow duration curve high-segment volume, and the percent bias in flow duration curve low-segment volume. Two climatological KGE benchmarks are included that are calculated using daily mean streamflow observations and interannual daily mean or median flows. Additionally, KGE uncertainty estimates have been added as a separate csv file including the standard error of jackknife, standard error of bootstrap, the 5th, 50th and 95th percentiles of the estimates, the jackknife score, the bias of jackknife, the bias of bootstrap, and the standard error of jackknife after bootstrap.
