The streamflow-data program in Alaska was analyzed to design a better data network. The analysis included (1) definition of the goals of the streamflow-data program, (2) evaluation of the available data to see which goals have already been achieved, and (3) consideration and recommendation of future programs to achieve the goals that have not been met. It was found that few of the goals have been met. Many new gaging stations are proposed to provide data to reach remaining unmet goals. Also, other kinds of data collection are proposed to complement the gaging-station data to attain the goals.
