FLOwPER Database: StreamFLOw PERmanence field observations, Jan 2021 - Dec 2021

June 4, 2024

IMPORTANT NOTE: This dataset includes spatial locations where streamflow permanence observations (continuous flow, discontinuous flow, and dry) were recorded using the FLOwPER (FLOw PERmanence) field survey available in the Survey 123. Additional information to describe the field conditions are included as part of the survey. Field observations in the FLOwPER Database have not been processed for quality control including spatial data accuracy or association with a stream network such as the National Hydrography Dataset. Streamflow permanence observations are collected from several governmental and non-governmental organizations on a continuing basis. This data release is formatted as a shapefile that includes streamflow permanence observations with associated information. Photographs associated with FLOwPER data points are included. The spatial extent of this dataset is the western United States and includes the following states: Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, and California.
