Summary

This data release contains output of the initial calibration of the conterminous United States (CONUS) application of the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) as implemented in the National Hydrologic Model (NHM) infrastructure (Regan et al, 2018). The PRMS version 5.0.0 hydrologic simulation code was used with the accompanying parameter files in the NHM infrastructure to produce the attached output files. Model input climate drivers include climate data derived from the Daymet gridded data set version 2 (Thornton et al., 2014) with values spatially-distributed to the HRUs using the USGS Geo Data Portal (https://cida.usgs.gov/gdp/; Blodgett et al., 2011). The parameter values are maintained in the National Hydrologic Model Parameter [...]
