Abstract

This code retrieves stream info from nwis using the dataretrieval tool in python. You can input site, parameters, and dates at the top. This code pulls daily measurements, annual_stats, and daily_stats.
We calculate 30-year normals, as well as plot annual average flows, annual min, max, and mean flows, and percentile flows. This resource only pulls from the USGS ftp site and doesn't have or require any local storage.
