Output Files from Hydrologic Simulations for the Conterminous United States for Historical and Future Conditions Using the National Hydrologic Model Infrastructure (NHMI) and the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) with Dynamic Land Cover

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

The continental United States (CONUS) was modeled to produce simulations of historical and potential future streamflow using the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) application of the USGS National Hydrologic Model Infrastructure (NHMI; Regan and others, 2018). This child page specifically contains outputs of streamflow for each stream segment in the model domain and is based on parameterization with dynamic land cover. The parameters that were allowed to vary were related to dominant land cover type, percent impervious area, and precipitation interception by the plant canopy and snowpack.The PRMS parameters describing vegetation and impervious area were derived from annual estimates of land cover to incorporate land-cover dynamics in the hydrologic simulations (further described in LaFontaine and others, 2019). Simulations were conducted for each of the global circulation models (GCMs) and relative concentration pathways (RCPs) presented in table1_GCMs_used.csv.
