The dataset includes five files of UK physical river characteristics including four files of gridded data at 1km × 1km resolution and one comma separated table. The data includes:
• Outflow drainage directions (D8)
• Catchment areas (km2)
• Widths of bankfull rivers (m)
• Depths of bankfull rivers (m)
• NRFA gauging station locations (easting (m), northing (m))
The comma separated NRFA (National River Flow Archive) gauging station locations table provides the best locations of 1499 river flow gauging stations on the 1km grids, together with the approximate error in the 1km × 1km gridded delineation of the upstream catchment area. All datasets are provided on the British National Grid.
