Summary

This dataset contains annual peak and seasonal maximum streamflow data from the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) and the results of an analysis of spatial and temporal patterns for those data for the conterminous U.S. An interpretation of the analysis of these data will be published in a journal article. The streamflow data were compiled for the years 1966 to 2015 for 415 streamgages that are part of the USGS HCDN-2009 network. The HCDN-2009 network contains streamgages in watersheds with minimal anthropogenic change. The dataset contains the annual peak and the maximum daily streamflow for the months of October through December (OND), January through March (JFM), April through June (AMJ), and July through September (JAS).
