LBA - Macrohydrological Dataset from the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE)
Entry ID: SAGE_LBA_MACROHYDRO


Summary
Abstract: Continental scale hydrologic routing models, also known as macrohydrological routing models, have evolved considerably in the past few years. As the models
have become more sophisticated, they have represented a variety of new processes, and expanded their data requirements either as input data or as validation for the model output. This is a new data set of large-scale
hydrological river flow routing parameters for the Amazon and Tocantins basins. The data set contains data on: (1) river network, at 5 minute (~9 km) resolution; (2) time series of monthly means of river discharge, for 122
fluviometric stations spread throughout the basin; (3) sinuosity of each of the main rivers, measured at 111 river sections in the basin; and (4) depth to the
water table and transmissivity of the aquifer, derived from measurements taken at 81 points throughout the basin.
