Summary

To provide daily mean streamflow values at ungaged (partial-record) sites within the Yankee Fork Salmon River watershed, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, used discharge measurements at three partial-record sites and related those measurements to a nearby USGS real-time streamgage (index site). Daily mean streamflow was estimated by developing a regression relationship between each partial-record site and the index site for water years 2012-2019. These data are intended to provide daily mean streamflow estimates at partial-record sites as part of a larger study (Clark and others, 2021) to estimate sediment loading for each site.

Purpose

This data release presents synthetic streamflow regression equations and daily mean streamflow estimates at three ungaged USGS sites on the Yankee Fork Salmon River near Clayton, ID for Water Years 2012-2019. These regressions will supersede the pseudo-hydrograph regressions previously published in Johnsen (2018).
