Summary

This is the second of two datasets containing derived data necessary to reproduce the results of the associated journal article: "On the Sensitivity of Annual Streamflow to Air Temperature," intended for publication in Water Resources Research. The first dataset contains monthly time series of basin-mean precipitation, air temperature, and net radiation, along with basin characteristics. This second dataset, using the first as input, contains empirical and theoretical estimates of annual streamflow sensitivities to precipitation, temperature, and previous-year streamflow. For each basin, a water year was defined by optimization of a streamflow regression against precipitation, temperature, and previous-year streamflow; all variables [...]

Purpose

The purpose of the dataset is to quantify the sensitivity of streamflow to air temperature at 2,673 gages around the world and to evaluate a theory for predicting that sensitivity.
