Our objective was to model specific mean daily flow (mean daily flow divided by drainage area [cubic feet per second per square mile]) on small, ungaged streams in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Modeling streamflows is an important tool for understanding landscape-scale drivers of flow and estimating flows where there are no gaged records. We focused our study in the Upper Colorado River Basin, a region that is not only critical for water resources but also projected to experience large future climate shifts toward a drier climate.We used a random forest modeling approach to model the relation between specific mean daily flow on gaged streams (115 gages) and environmental variables. We then projected specific mean...

Our objective was to model specific minimum flow (mean of the annual minimum flows divided by drainage area [cubic feet per second per square mile]) on small, ungaged streams in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Modeling streamflows is an important tool for understanding landscape-scale drivers of flow and estimating flows where there are no gaged records. We focused our study in the Upper Colorado River Basin, a region that is not only critical for water resources but also projected to experience large future climate shifts toward a drier climate.

This data release contains inputs for and outputs from hydrologic simulations of the upper Chattahoochee River Basin in northeast Georgia using the Precipitation Runoff Modeling System (PRMS). These simulations were developed to provide example applications of enhancements to the PRMS for the following topics: two new time-series input options (dynamic parameter module and water-use module), two new output options (Hydrologic Response Unit (HRU) summary output module and basin variables summary output module), and three updates of existing capabilities (stream and lake flow routing module, surface-depression storage and flow simulation, and the initial-conditions specification). These PRMS model input and output...

Streamflow was collected at various streamgages in western Pennsylvania in support of the scientific investigations report "Estimation of Base Flow on Ungaged, Periodically Measured Streams in Small Watersheds in Western Pennsylvania". Data were selected for the development of 12 regressions to examine the differences between prediction intervals when runoff-influenced data were included in the data selection and when it was not. This dataset includes 1) data used to develop prediction intervals for the titled estimation site based upon the titled index streamgage, 2) zero streamflow information, and 3) evaluation of the prediction interval with non-runoff influenced data. For prediction interval development a Move.1...

Our objective was to model the risk of becoming intermittent under drier climate conditions on small, ungaged streams in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Modeling streamflows is an important tool for understanding landscape-scale drivers of flow and estimating flows where there are no gaged records. We focused our study in the Upper Colorado River Basin, a region that is not only critical for water resources but also projected to experience large future climate shifts toward a drier climate. We used a conditional inference modeling approach to model the relation between intermittency status on gaged streams (115 gages) and selected mean and minimum flow metrics. We then projected intermittency status and if a stream...

The upper Chattahoochee River Basin in northeast Georgia was modeled to produce seven example simulations of streamflow for demonstration of enhancements to the Precipitation Runoff Modeling System (PRMS). These data document the PRMS output data files from each of these simulations. Output files for the following simulations are included: 1) a baseline simulation of the existing model (includes HRU summary and basin variables output modules, and updates to depression storage), 2) a simulation using the dynamic parameters enhancement, 3) a simulation that generates an initial conditions file, 4) a simulation that uses a previously generated initial conditions file, 5) a simulation that uses the flow replacement...

The U.S. Geological Survey Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) was used to assess the effects of changing climate and land disturbance on seasonal streamflow in the Rio Grande Headwaters (RGHW) region. Three applications of PRMS in the RGHW were used to simulate 1) baseline effects of climate (see RGHW-PRMS_baseline_input.zip), 2) effects of bark-beetle induced tree mortality (see RGHW-PRMS_BB_input.zip), and 3) effects of wildfire (see RGHW-PRMS_fire_input.zip), on components of the hydrologic cycle by hydrologic response unit (HRU) and subsequent seasonal streamflow runoff from April through September for water years 1980 through 2017. PRMS input files (control, climate-by-hru, data, parameter, dynamic...

The Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) was used to produce simulations of streamflow for seven watersheds in eastern and central Montana for a baseline period (water years 1982-1999) and three future periods (water years 2021-2038, 2046–2063, and 2071-2038). The seven areas that were modeled are the O'Fallon, Redwater, Little Dry, Middle Musselshell, Judith, Cottonwood Creek, and Belt watersheds. Appendix 2 is provided as supplementary information to accompany the forthcoming journal article Potential Effects of Climate Change on Streamflow for Seven Watersheds in Eastern and Central Montana. These data document the monthly streamflow (in cubic meters per second) at the downstream end of each stream...

The USGS and Newmont Mining Corp. surveyed 51 cross sections to determine hydraulic characteristics throughout 12 model reaches. The accuracy of the surveyed cross sections is believed to be +/- 0.5 ft. Field surveys included measuring the channel cross section up to the approximate altitude of the highest flood and includes auxiliary channels. Surveyed cross sections generally were at representative locations about every 3 miles along the Humboldt River channel. In areas where long overbank sections occurred, supplemental altitudes were determined from topographic maps in order to extend surveyed parts of cross sections so that each section represented the full width of the floodplain. In this dataset there is...

Longer, drier summers projected for arid and semi-arid regions of western North America under climate change are likely to have enormous consequences for water resources and river-dependent ecosystems. Many climate change scenarios for this region involve decreases in mean annual streamflow, latesummer precipitation and late-summer streamflow in the coming decades. Intermittent streams are already common in this region, and it is likely that minimum flows will decrease and some perennial streams will shift to intermittent flow under climate-driven changes in timing and magnitude of precipitation and runoff, combined with increases in temperature. To understand current intermittency among streams and analyze the...

The datasets herein are the observed instantaneous values of streamflow for the titled U.S. Geological Survey streamgage with precipitation metadata added. Days where streamflow is directly affected by precipitation and the day afterwards is identified with a "B". Two days after a precipitation event is identified with a "C". If the streamflow was affected by snow or ice, the data is identified with a "D". Any data that is not precipitation influenced is identified with an "A". This metadata was applied on the basis of numerous rain gages in the vicinity of the streamgage and radar images obtained from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/data-access/radar-data/radar-map-tool...

Our objective was to model mean annual number of zero-flow days (days per year) for small streams in the Upper Colorado River Basin under historic hydrologic conditions on small, ungaged streams in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Modeling streamflows is an important tool for understanding landscape-scale drivers of flow and estimating flows where there are no gaged records. We focused our study in the Upper Colorado River Basin, a region that is not only critical for water resources but also projected to experience large future climate shifts toward a drier climate.
