Welcome to the main repository of the WaterBench, a large-scale benchmark dataset for streamflow forecasting. The dataset covers the 125 catchments in Iowa, US with seven different features, including precipitation, streamflow rate and ET with available data from October 1st, 2011 (the water year 2012) to September 30th, 2018 (the water year 2018).
In the examples, four different models used in our paper is provided with ready to run notebooks.
The original files of the dataset can be downloaded from here as an archive file. The metadata is provided in the archive file.
The files that we used in sample codes can be downloaded from here as an archive file. The metadata is provided in the archive file.
