Phillips. 2 Streamflow Information for the Next Century— A Plan for the National Streamflow Information Program of the U.S. Geological Survey The present approach to providing streamflow information is rapidly becoming inadequate and unstable. The reasons relate to two fundamental changes that affect the network. The first change is.

      The U.S. Geological Survey stream-gaging program provides streamflow data for a variety of purposes. The uses of streamflow data are described, and the growth of the stream-gaging program is related to legislation and the need to manage the Nation's water resources more effectively. A brief description is provided of the data-collection processes, computation of streamflow records. the current network and other stations that have been operated in the past represent a wealth of information about floods, but the data are not adequate for identifying all flood hazards.

A new evaluation of the USGS streamgaging network Sincethe U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has operated a streamgaging network to collect information about the Nation's water resources.

It is a multipurpose network funded by the USGS and. Starting in March the USGS began a new approach to network evaluation, using the geospatial infrastructure of the national network of rivers and their watersheds. The streamgaging network analysis tool simulates the expert knowledge of hydrologists and applies it to a GIS data base to determine how well the network meets specified goals.

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Streamgaging Network Congressional Research Service 1 Introduction Streamgages measure water level and related streamflow at streams, rivers, lakes, and reservoirs across the country.

Streamgages provide foundational information for. The stream-gaging network expanded to 10 stations during the early 's when a cooperative program was established between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the State of Maryland. The cooperative program ended temporarily inwas reinitiated inand the stream- gaging network was expanded to 28 stations by the early 's.

PURPOSES OF THE STREAMGAGING NETWORK Long-Term Uses Streamgaging became an organized part of the USGS in when John Wesley Powell, the second Director of the USGS, requested that streamflow be monitored in eight river basins in the arid West.

FPS are strategically positioned across the Nation to serve, in part, as a “backbone” for the larger USGS streamgaging network that is operated by the USGS in cooperation with over 1, Contacts: Mark N Landers, Chad R Wagner.

United States Geological Survey An Overview of the Stream-Gaging Program The USGS provides maps, reports, and information to help others meet their needs to manage, develop, and protect America's water, energy, mineral, and land resources.

We help find natural resources needed to build tomorrow, and supply scientific understanding needed to. A recent, comprehensive evaluation of the current USGS streamgaging network, coupled with external reviews of the value and utility of the network, served as the blueprint for the NSIP Federal network.

The evaluation was based on a Geographic Information System (CIS) analysis tool that enables USGS hydrolo- gists to assess the current network. Get this from a library.

This Fact Sheet is one in a series that highlights information or recent research findings from the USGS National Streamflow Information Program (NSIP). The investigations and scientific results reported in this series require a nationally consistent streamgaging network with stable long-term monitoring sites and a rigorous program of data, quality assurance, management, archiving, and synthesis.

means it’s official. Federal government websites often end Before sharing sensitive information, make sure you’re on a federal government site. Inat the request of Congress, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) prepared a report entitled A New Evaluation of the USGS Streamgaging Network (USGS, ), stating that the network’s ability to meet long-standing federal goals had declined because of an absolute loss of streamgages, a disproportionate loss of streamgages with a long period of record, and the declining ability of the USGS to continue.
