Welcome to the CUAHSI Water Data Center

The WDC provides data services to the hydrologic science community and other critical-zone science communities that require access to various sources of water data to perform research on fundamental challenges in hydrology and Earth System science. We enable the water research community through supporting data access and publication, software development and curation, in addition to the development of standards.
