Data that describe the physical characteristics of stream subbasins upstream from selected sites on streams
in the Cannon River Basin, located in southeastern Minnesota, are presented in this report. The physical
characteristics are the drainage area of the subbasin, the percentage area of the subbasin covered only by
lakes, the percentage area of the subbasin covered by both lakes and marsh, the main-channel length, and the
main-channel slope. Stream sites include outlets of subbasins of at least 5 square miles, and locations of U.S.
Geological Survey high-flow, and continuous-record gaging stations.
