usgs civil defense rainfall data collection network
USGS & Civil Defense Rainfall Data Collection Network
  • 17 Basins
  • Over 120 data collection stations from USGS
  • 34 data collection stations from CD
  • Five types of measurements
    • Rainfall
    • River discharge
    • River level
    • Lake level
    • Lake discharge
