Little River, Georgia Experimental Watershed Rainfall and Streamflow DataEntry ID: USDA0084
Abstract: The purpose of "Little River, Georgia Experimental Watershed
Rainfall and Streamflow Data" is to provide for the analysis of
coastal plain watershed processes, and developing and testing
prediction methodology for ungaged watersheds.
Collection Organization: USDA-ARS Southeast Watershed Research
Collection Methodology: Rainfall data are collected and recorded at
5-minute intervals by ... recording rain gages spaced at 2 to 8 km apart
over the watershed. Stream stage data are recorded at 5-minute
intervals by stage recorders located at 6 weir sites on the watershed.
Stream stage records are converted to discharge records using ratings
curves developed from streamflow measurements.
Collection Frequency: 5 minutes.
Update Characteristics: Data are processed monthly as received from
field gage recorders. Basic data record is updated every 6 months.
ACCESS/AVAILABILITY: The data are not available online. Please
contact the dataset custodian.
