  • Hourly precipitation (mm) recorded at distributed points around Kampala between April 2019 and March 2020. Only timestamps where data were available from all sensors have been included. There are 8094 records in total and no missing values. Timestamps are recorded as “YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss”. The geographic coordinates of the sensors are provided in GeoJSON format. The column names in the CSV file correspond to the “id” field in the GeoJSON file. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/3df031ad-34ec-4abc-8528-f8f20bad12b8

  • This data contains the time series flow discharge results of hydrological simulation of the River Trent at Colwick using UKCP09 Weather Generator inputs for a variety of time slices and emissions scenarios. The Weather Generator (WG) inputs were run on a hydrological model (Leathard et al., unpublished), calibrated using the observed record 1961-2002. Each simulation is derived from 100 30-year time series of weather at the WG location 4400355 for Control, Low, Medium and High emissions scenarios for the 2020s, 2030s, 2040s, 2050s and 2080s time slices. The datasets include the relevant accompanying input WG data. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/986d3df3-d9bf-42eb-8e18-850b8d54f37b

  • This CD-ROM set contains the Volume 1 hydrology and soil data collection. The data covers a 24 month period, 1987-1988, and all but one are mapped to a common spatial resolution and grid (1 degree x 1 degree). Temporal resolution for most datasets is monthly; however, a few are at a finer resolution (e.g., 6-hourly). This dataset contains data covering: * Precipitation * Hydrology cover * River basin streamflow * Global soil properties

  • The topographic index is a hydrological quantity describing the propensity of the soil at landscape points to become saturated with water as a result of topographic position (i.e. not accounting for other factors such as climate that also affect soil moisture but are accounted for separately). Modern land surface models require a characterisation of the land surface hydrological regime and this parameter allows the use of the TOPMODEL hydrological model to achieve this .This Geographic Information System layer is intended for use as topographic ancillary files for the TOPMODEL routing model option within the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) land surface model. The topographic index variable here is directly comparable to the compound topographic index available from United States Geological Survey's Hydro1K at 30 sec resolution. PLEASE NOTE: This dataset is a correction to a previous version which was found to contain errors (doi:10/t7d). In the previous version all pixels north of 4.57 degrees south were shifted consistently 9.3 km to the west. This version is correctly aligned at all points.

  • [THIS DATASET HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN].

  • This dataset contains monthly maps of dry and wet snow for a Himalayan river basin in northern India. The data were collected as part of the Sustaining Himalayan Water Resources in a Changing Climate (SusHi-Wat) project aimed at improving our understanding on how water is stored in, and moves through, a Himalayan river system in northern India. The maps were obtained by combining satellite remote sensing images from Sentinel-1 and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The resolution of the maps is 500m and the coordinate system is EPSG:4326. The dry snow data correspond to the MODIS land cover product (MCD12Q1). The wet snow data were obtained from Sentinel-1 by applying a -2dB threshold on the backscatter ratio between a Sentinel-1 image with wet snow and a reference Sentinel-1 image with only dry snow. The possible pixel values are: 0: no snow, 1-100: wet snow cover fraction, 101-200: dry snow cover fraction with an offset of 100, 240: missing Sentinel-1 data, 250: pixel wrongly identified as wet snow by Sentinel-1 (false positives), 255: fill value. The images are GeoTIFF formatted.

  • This dataset is part of Integrated Hydrological Units (IHU) of the UK, a set of geographical reference units for hydrological purposes including river flow measurement and hydrometric data collection. A Section is the drainage area of a watercourse between two confluences. Only confluences of named watercourses were considered. Each Section carries a name constructed from names of the major river flowing through the Section, the major river flowing into the Section, and the major river into which the Section flows. Sections are spatially consistent with Groups: each Group is made up of one or more Section. Each Section is associated with one Catchment representing the full area upstream from the Section outlet. Identifiers and attributes have been calculated so that direct upstream and direct downstream IHU units can be selected. This layer currently covers Great Britain only as no dataset with river geometries and names with suitable detail is available for Northern Ireland.

  • This dataset is part of Integrated Hydrological Units (IHU) of the UK, a set of geographical reference units for hydrological purposes including river flow measurement and hydrometric data collection. Groups represent the intermediate units of IHU in terms of spatial resolution. The most common size of a group is around 400 square kilometres. Each Group carries a name constructed from names of the major river flowing through the Group, the major river flowing into the Group, the major river into which the Group flows, and sometimes also from local county names. Each Group consists of one or more Section and Groups can be combined to form Hydrometric Areas without Coastline. Identifiers and attributes have been calculated so that direct upstream and direct downstream IHU units can be selected. This layer currently covers Great Britain only as no dataset with river geometries and names with suitable detail is available for Northern Ireland.

  • This dataset is part of Integrated Hydrological Units (IHU) of the UK, a set of geographical reference units for hydrological purposes including river flow measurement and hydrometric data collection. This dataset was derived from the Integrated Hydrological Terrain Model. A Catchment represents the full area upstream from a Section outlet, which is a cell upstream of a confluence of two watercourses with known names. While Sections do not overlap, Catchments can overlap because one Catchment contains Catchments for all upstream Sections. This layer currently covers Great Britain only as no dataset with river geometries and names with suitable detail is available for Northern Ireland.

  • This dataset is part of Integrated Hydrological Units (IHU) of the UK, a set of geographical reference units for hydrological purposes including river flow measurement and hydrometric data collection. Hydrometric Areas are either integral river catchments having one or more outlets to the sea or tidal estuary, or they may include several contiguous river catchments having topographical similarity but separate tidal outlets. Hydrometric Areas are the coarsest units of the IHU in terms of spatial resolution. This dataset represents the same entities as the Hydrometric Areas with Coastline. The coastline of Hydrometric Areas without Coastline follows the boundaries of the CEH Integrated Hydrological Digital Terrain Model, from which IHU were derived, while the coastline used in Hydrometric Areas with Coastline was derived from Ordnance Survey data. The Hydrometric Areas without Coastline currently covers Great Britain only as no dataset with river geometries and names with suitable detail is available for Northern Ireland.
