Global Monthly Streamflow Time Series

| DOI: 10.5065/6SHT-QM39

This dataset contains a copy of the CDRom "Global Streamflow Time Series, v.1.0 (a global hydro-climatic data network)". Monthly streamflow data from 1345 sites around the globe are included, with the purpose of characterizing streamflow variability over seasonal time frames.

NOTE: This CDRom has been fully included into ds552.1. See that dataset for the data.

Data License:
Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
