Summary

This data release contains inputs and outputs for hydrologic simulations of the conterminous United States (CONUS) using the National Hydrologic Model (NHM) application of the Precipitation Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) in ASCII and binary format and explanatory graphics in pdf format. These simulations were developed to provide estimates of water availability for historical conditions for the period October 1, 1980 to September 30, 2016 for five different calibration configurations; the first three years of the simulation should be considered the initialization period and should not be used for subsequent analysis. The five versions of model parameters and associated model output included in this data release are described in table [...]
