This data set consists of reconstructed June/July/August streamflow from White
River, AR (cubic meter/second, divided by 1000); Standard deviation 1023-1299
reduced to match standrad deviation 1300-1985 by multiplying that part of
series (with the 1023-1299 mean subtracted) by 699/891, then adding back the
mean. This is the series that was published.
The data also contains:
Reconstruction ... without variance adjustment 1023-1299 and Observed JJA
streamflow (m cubed /sec, divided by 1000). This data was supplied by the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers Memphis District (B-202 Clifford Davis Federal Bldg,
Memphis, TN 38103-1854).
Original units were feet cubed /sec.
