Summary of streamflow statistics for USGS streamgages in the southeastern United States: 1950 - 2010

January 30, 2019

This dataset contains statistical descriptions of observed daily-mean streamflow for 956 sites in the southeast United States. For each site, statistical descriptions are provided according to decade for up to six decades, beginning in 1950 (1950-59 calendar years) and ending with 2000 (2000 - 2009 calendar years) with no more than 7 missing values per year in total (continuous or noncontinuous). There are 40 statistical descriptions including 28 flow-duration curve values, 8 L-moments, and 4 describing the minimum, maximum, median flow for days not equal to zero, and number of zero-flow days. Site information is provided by decade - the number of rows per site varies from 1 to 6 depending on the number of decades with observed record available. This information was used as the response variable(s) for statistical models for estimating the same characteristics at nearly 10,000 ungaged locations throughout the southeast United States. The dataset has been provided as a shapefile and a comma-delimited file. The comma-delimited file is an exact copy of the attribute table of the shapefile.
