USGS Real-Time Water Data for the Nation DLESE Reviewed Collection
This USGS site allows students to access a variety of streamflow information. There is an interactive map where the user can select streamflow data for selected stream gaging stations in the United States. Stations can be selected in list form, an interactive state map, or 10 nearest stations to position selected. Each retrieval form allows the user to refine their data search through predefined displays, such as tables, maps, or reports. Tables can be called up and further defined by basin, county, or hydrologic unit. For those unfamiliar with the process of data collection, an explanation of stream gaging is provided by a link.
