Entry ID: RIVDIS_199_1

Abstract: The Global Monthly River Discharge Data Set (RivDIS) contains monthly averaged discharge measurements for 1,018 stations located throughout the world from 1807-1991. The period of record varies widely from station to station with a mean of 21.5 years. The data are derived from the published UNESCO archives for river discharge, and checked against information obtained from the Global Runoff Center in Koblenz, Germany through the U.S. National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado.
