General information and objectives

For the development and verification of atmospheric and hydrologic models, the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC), located in Germany, has compiled a global data base of stream flow data. The data base, which is updated continually, contains daily and monthly discharge data information for over 2,900 hydrologic stations in river basins located in 143 countries. GRDC disseminates data and additional data products on request. A catalog with updated information and a standard set of tables, statistics and graphic displays can be provided to data users for selected stations.
