Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Nuuk - River hydrology - Discharge @ river Kobbefjord (m3/s)
  • Description: River discharge measured with continuous water level measurements converted by a stage-discharge relation based on manual discharge measurements. Hourly sample values in m3/s. The hydrometric station (station nr. 650) is located at the outlet of Badesø at 22 m a.s.l.. Water level is measured by pressure sensors that connect to a data logger on the bank. The timeseries starts in 2006. Please read the metadata file provided with the data for comments related to the data in this timeseries. River hydrology:River hydrology ClimateBasis Nuuk:The ClimateBasis programme monitors climate and hydrology in Zackenberg, Kobbefjord and Disko (Qeqertarsuaq) and is run by Asiaq - Greenland Survey. The collected data build base-line information on climate variability and trends for all the other sub-programmes within GEM and serve as a trustworthy foundation for adaptation strategies for the Greenlandic society. The stations are embedded in Asiaq’s extensive climate and hydrology monitoring network. Furthermore, the run-off data is delivered to the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS) and the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) networks.

Variables measured / columns in dataset

ID Name Unit Data Type Description Date YYYY-MM-DD Date Date of observation Time HH:MM Time Time of observation. WGWT (UTC-3) Q (m3/s) m³/s Number Data comments: Quality Flag Text Flag assigned during quality control. Flag = "fair" is assigned instead of good to indicate where a value is interpolated, or, where only 1 timeseries has been used where it is normal to take the average of 2 timeseries. Flag = unknown is equivalent to the flag "good" or "fair" and is due a change in proceedures. Work is underway to update these flags.
