Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release contains the code, data, executables, and other information necessary to run the application Unit Flows in Networks of Channels (UFINCH). The UFINCH application is a computer code that utilizes the geospatial stream connectivity and catchment geometry described in National Hydrography Dataset Plus value added attributes (NHDPlus Version 2) to simulate unit (15-minute) flows in networks of channels, generally by use of daily flows at the most downstream stream segment in a basin at which a USGS streamgage is located. Preliminary testing indicates that UFINCH may be most applicable for simulating unregulated, non-estuarial, flows in basins as large as 3,000 square miles in area. Streamgage [...]

Purpose

The purpose of UFINCH is to help extend unit and daily flow information in stream networks defined within the NHDPlus geospatial framework by use of continuous flow information at USGS streamgages.
