Current estimates of the magnitude and frequency of floods at gaged and ungaged stream sites are critical for assessing flood risk, delineating flood zones, designing hydraulic structures, and managing flood plains. The Connecticut Department of Transportation collaborated with U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in a study to improve the flood-frequency estimates in Connecticut and develop regional regression equations for estimating annual exceedance probability discharges at ungaged sites in Connecticut. The results of the study are found in Scientific Investigations Report (http://doi.org/10.3133/sir20205054). This companion data release consists of data compiled and used for the flood-frequency analysis of annual...

This dataset provides compiled and computed data from 1900 through 2017 associated with streamflow statistics used to perform regional analyses for the Brazos, Colorado, Big Cypress, Guadalupe, Neches, Sulphur, and Trinity River Basins. These seven river basins are mostly within Texas, but parts of some of the basins extend into New Mexico and Louisiana. Because changes in precipitation, temperature and groundwater levels can appreciably affect streamflow, understanding changes in streamflow requires taking these forcing variables into account. Long-term streamflow statistics for these seven river basins were derived by analyzing streamflow data and other observed climatological variables. Data include tables of...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recently completed a report documenting methods for peak-flow frequency analysis following implementation of the Bulletin 17C guidelines (https://doi.org/10.3133/tm4B5). The methods provide estimates of peak-flow quantiles for 50-, 20-, 10-, 4-, 2-, 1-, 0.5-, and 0.2-percent annual exceedance probabilities (AEPs) for selected streamgages operated by the USGS and Environment Canada. In association with the report, this data release presents peak-flow frequency analyses for 148 streamgages (127 stations in Maine, 16 in New Hampshire, and 5 in New Brunswick, Canada). Included are 148 individual ".PRT" text files that contain results of the flood-frequency analyses of annual peak flows...

Flood-frequency analyses for 141 streamgages in Connecticut were updated using the U.S. Geological Survey program PeakFQ, version 7.2 (https://water.usgs.gov/software/PeakFQ/; Veilleux and others, 2014). The PeakFQ program follows Bulletin 17C national guidelines for flood-frequency analysis (https://doi.org/10.3133/tm4B5). The input and output files to PeakFQ that were used in the Connecticut flood-frequency update are presented. Individual file folders for the 141 streamgages using the streamgage identification number as the folder name contain three files: ".TXT" file used as input to PeakFQ contains the annual peak flows for the streamgage in standard PeakFQ (WATSTORE) text format available from NWIS web at...

What will the rivers of the Pacific Northwest look like in the future? Will they be stable or unstable? Will the waters be cold and clear or warm and muddy? Will they have salmon or other species? These questions motivated our two-year study of climate warming effects on headwater streams draining the Cascade Mountains. Using a novel combination of snow, geohydrology, and sediment transport models we assessed the vulnerability of stream channels to changing peak streamflow. Our snow modeling shows that with just a 2°C warming, snowfall shifts to rainfall at all elevations, peak snowpacks occur over two months earlier, and snowpacks are reduced by over half of historical values. Our geohydrology modeling shows that...
