Low-streamflow trends and basin characteristics for 2,482 U.S. Geological Survey streamgages in the conterminous U.S.

February 20, 2019

This data release contains drainage basin characteristics and low-streamflow trend results for 2,482 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) streamgages in the conterminous U.S. Data include streamgage identification number, name, drainage area, latitude, longitude, percent developed land use, percent crop land use, dam storage, streamgage classification, record completeness status, and trend slopes and significance for several low-streamflow and related metrics. Also included is an R script containing the Mann-Kendall trend test for three different null hypotheses of the serial structure of the time-series data: independence, short-term persistence, and long-term persistence.
