Cooper Creek and Diamantina River stream gauges


The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from the Bureau's Hydstra Systems dataset. The source datasets is identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

The dataset provides a shapefile of stream gauging stations that include both active and past stream gauges in the Cooper Creek and Diamantina river basins of the Lake Eyre Basin Bioregion. Source data was provided by the Bureau's Hydstra Systems. Majority of these gauges record stage height and discharge. Only a few gauges record water quality parameters (e.g. salinity, turbidity, water temperature) in addition to stage height and discharge.


Discharge data were used to estimate mean annual flow and overall flow regime.

Dataset History

This dataset uses locations of gauging stations for which stream flow time-series data were extracted from the Bureau's Hydstra system.
