Summary

This data release contains drainage basin characteristics and peak-streamflow trend and change-point results for 2,683 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) streamgages in the conterminous U.S. Data include streamgage identification number, name, drainage area, latitude, longitude, percent urban land use, dam storage, streamgage classification, record completeness status, lag-1 autocorrelation, trend slopes and significance, peaks-over-threshold counts, trends in the numbers of peaks-over-threshold, and change point years and values for median and scale. Also included is an R script containing the Mann-Kendall trend test for three different null hypotheses of the serial structure of the time-series data: independence, short-term persistence, [...]
