Summary

This dataset is part of the National Water Census Water Budget Estimation and Evaluation Project's ongoing development of best estimates of daily historical water budgets for over 100,000 hydrologic units across the United States. In this release, estimates of actual evapotranspiration and snowpack water equivalent storage are added to the already released estimates of soil moisture, recharge, streamflow, and precipitation. All these estimates are made available per twelve-digit hydrologic unit code watershed as contained in the NHDPlus v2.1 dataset. As this project progresses, it is expected that a complete closed water budget generated from the same water budget model will succeed this data release. For background on source data [...]
