Abstract

Statistical summaries of streamflow data for selected gaging stations are presented in this report to aid in appraising the hydrology of the Hudson Bay and upper Missouri River basins in Montana. Streamflow records are presented for 122 gaging stations for the period of record of each station. Streamflow-record collection in the Missouri River basin began in 1890 at Fort Benton, Mont. For each streamflow-gaging station selected for this report, a brief description is given for station location, drainage area, period of record, revisions of previously published records, type and history of gages, regulation and diversions, average discharge, and extremes of discharge. These data are followed by tables of monthly and annual mean discharge, flood-frequency data, low-flow and high-flow frequency data, and flow-duration information. (USGS)
