Entry ID: USGS_streamflow

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Approximately 5,000 of the 6,900 U.S. Geological Survey sampling stations are
equipped with telemetry to transmit data on streamflow, temperature, and other
parameters back to a data base for real-time viewing via the World Wide Web. A
map of the realtime stations is produced every day.

Each USGS District Office serves the realtime data of the stations it services.
