This data set is a collection of daily, decadal, monthly values of different variables of water and heat balance measured at the network of water balance stations and research watersheds in the former Soviet Union.
This research is currently conducted by Hydrograph Model Research Group. It is supported by Russian Foundation for Basic Research (grant no 12-05-92607) and Gidrotehproekt Ltd.
Data are available as EXCEL files via website http://hydrograph-model.ru/.
