"abstract": "<p>This dataset provides a synthesized national record of river gauges. \u00a0It includes inferred flows which are based on\u00a0the structure of the river network and empirical flow relationships. \u00a0In total, the network contains\u00a022619 gauges (or virtual junction gauges) and over 1 million years of monthly data.</p>\n\n<p>The dataset is provide as a saved data file for R, flowdata.RData, containing two variables: nodes and allflow.</p>\n\n<p>nodes describes each gauges or virtual junction gauge in the water flow network, representing a combination of gauges from multiple sources. \u00a0The source is specified by the collection column, as follows:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>rivdis: From the RivDIS dataset, at\u00a0http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.UNH/.CSRC/.RivDIS/index.html?Set-Language=en</li>\n\t<li>usgs: GAGES II river gauge</li>\n\t<li>reservoir: National Inventory of Dams reservoir</li>\n\t<li>usgsres: USGS gauged reservoir</li>\n\t<li>canal: Canal cross county boundaries</li>\n\t<li>junction: Junction node added to capture the structure of rivers from HydroSHEDS</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>The colid specifies the ID of the gauge within its collection, and combined\u00a0collection and colid are unique. \u00a0The location of the gauge is specified by the latitude lat and longitude lon. \u00a0The elevation is provided in meters in column elev.</p>\n\n<p>The flow data is contained in the allflow matrix. \u00a0This matrix has a column for each node (as many columns as there are rows in nodes), and a row for each month\u00a0starting from Jan. 1915. \u00a0All the flows are in units of m^3 / s.</p>",
