Summary

This data release is the update of the U.S. Geological Survey - ScienceBase data release Bera (2017b), with the processed data for the period October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2016. Watershed Data Management (WDM; Lumb and Kittle, 1986) database file WBDR13.WDM is updated with the quality-assured and quality-controlled meteorological and hydrologic data for the period October 1, 2013, through September 30, 2016, following the guidelines documented in Bera (2017a) and is named as WBDR16.WDM. The complete list of datasets in WBDR16.WDM database and the detail attributes of each of these datasets is given in table 1. Meteorological data other than precipitation (wind speed, solar radiation, air temperature, dewpoint temperature, [...]

Purpose

The data sets in this database may be used as input to the Hydrological Simulation Program-FORTRAN (HSPF) model or other similar rainfall-runoff model for simulating streamflow in DuPage County and nearby areas in northeastern Illinois. This database will be available to the public and other cooperators for doing similar simulations or meteorological analyses.
