Data for modeled EDEN water level surfaces are available in two different formats:

A daily median file provides users with a list of gages and data used to generate the day's water-level surface. Metadata for the water-level surfaces is also provided.

NetCDF Files:

NetCDF (Network Common Data Form) is a set of freely-distributed software libraries and machine-independent binary data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of large array-oriented scientific data. This format replaces the bulky file structure and difficult file management of ESRI GRIDS for EDEN data. It also allows EDEN applications to run on computers without ArcGIS installations.

Each file contains 3 months (one quarter-year) of daily datasets. For example, the data for every day in 2020 will be stored in 4 files: 2020_q1.nc, 2020_q2.nc, 2020_q3.nc, and 2020_q4.nc. In addition, each zip file contains a readme file which contains brief information about release notes related to this data release.

NetCDF Files

File naming conventions:

  • v# = version of water level surface model (v2 or v3),
  • prov = provisional,
  • rt = real-time

Note: You may download a year's worth of data all at once. Simply click the link below for each year. Because of file size limits, the most you can download at one time is a year. If you need to download several year's worth of data at once, please contact Bryan McCloskey (bmccloskey@usgs.gov) and other arrangements can be made.

Date 1/1 - 3/31 4/1 - 6/30 7/1 - 9/30 10/1 - 12/31
You can also download water-level surface NetCDF files via the EDEN THREDDS server.

Daily Median Output File

Each zip file contains 3 months (one quarter-year) of daily median files. Prior to 5/14/12, two files are generated each day; "median" and "median_reject". Starting 5/14/12, a single daily median file combines the information in the previous two files. A readme file is included with each zip file that includes a short description of each file.
