Curated rain and flow data for the Brazilian rainforest-savann transition zone

2017-03-06T22:37:46Z (GMT) by Morgan Levy
This data package provides a curated set of long-term, historical daily rainfall and streamflow data for a large region spanning the southern Amazonian rainforest and tropical savanna biomes of Brazil. This package also includes documentation of data acquisition and processing, and related programmatic scripts. The curated data set was derived from free, publicly-available rainfall, streamflow, and associated geographic information systems (GIS) data obtained from the Brazilian water management and electricity regulatory agencies: Agência Nacional de Águas (ANA) and Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica (ANEEL), respectively. See `ReadMe.txt' for data package contents and summaries, and `data_processing_summary.pdf' for complete documentation. <div><br></div><div>For analysis-ready, quality-controlled (i) rainfall and streamflow time series data, (ii) gauge locations, and (iii) catchment boundary GIS data (only), see the same-named data package version at the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science (CUAHSI) Hydroshare platform.</div><div><br></div><div>Please cite:</div><div><br></div><div>(via Figshare): Levy, Morgan C.
