Global River Discharge Database (RivDIS)

Submitted by ORNL DAAC Staff on 2000-01-27

Using the Global River Discharge (RivDIS) Database has become a whole lot easier. The ORNL DAAC has divided RivDIS, Version 1.1, into separate station files so that users can readily find information by country, river, and station. We have also generated a set of useful plots and tables for each station.

RivDIS contains monthly discharge measurements from 1018 stations around the world. The period of record ranges from 1807 to 1991.

The individual RivDIS station-level data are catalogued in a file named STATIONS.HTM.
