WATSTORE Stream Flow Basin Characteristics FileEntry ID: EARTH_LAND_USGS_Water_flow_SFBC
Abstract: The Stream Flow Basin Characteristics file contains information about the
drainage basins of selected USGS gauging stations. Data include drainage basin
area, forested basin area, elevation, peak flow, average yearly flow, and mean
annual precipitation to the basins. Data elements of this file were converted
into an ARC/INFO point coverage. Data are current as of 1986.
