Content Type Downloadable Data
Abstract This layer contains the locations of historic and current USGS streamflow gauges for Montana. The layer contains a separate record for each parameter and data type that is collected by each gauge, so many of the gauges are represented multiple times in the layer. Data types available from USGS include daily mean values, "instantaneous" values that are collected every fifteen minutes or every hour dating back to October 1, 2007, and "archived instantaneous" values from before October 1, 2007". Each record has a URL to bring up the appropriate USGS data page for the station and data type. In some cass the USGS site will attempt to bring up current data for discontinued sites, but the user may then select appropriate dates for the site and view the archived data.These data were removed from the State Library web site on 8/3/2015 and replaced with a new layer from the same source that only has one record for each station.
