Summary

A table is presented listing: (1) monthly streamflows, (2) drought duration dates, (3) drought severity indices, (4) supporting statistics, and (5) identification tags, for analysis of hydrological droughts in the Conterminous United States (CONUS). Data were summarized from USGS streamflow daily values (DV), readily available from the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System (NWIS), for USGS gage stations used in SIR 2017-5099 Variability of Hydrological Droughts in the Conterminous United States, 1951 through 2014 by Samuel H. Austin, David M. Wolock, and David L. Nelms. https://doi. org/10.3133/sir20175099
