Abstract

Annual streamflows from the 21 water resources regions in the United States and Puerto Rico were calculated for the period 1951-83. The total streamflow discharging to the oceans from the conterminous United States during this period averaged, 1,270 billion gallons per day. The outflow from the Lower Mississippi Water Resources Region (08), which drains 41 percent of the land area of the conterminous United States, contributes 34 percent of the total streamflow to the oceans, which is the most of any region.
