Example 1

Accessing and post-processing the North American lake-river routing product

To use this notebook walkthrough, BasinMaker needs to be installed in full installation mode. The detailed installation procedure can be found in here.

The following BasinMaker post-processing activities will be demonstrated in this example:

  1. Download the routing product subregions containing our two example streamflow gauges (BasinMaker not needed).
  2. Import packages to prepare to run BasinMaker.
  3. Extract the drainage area for a streamflow gauge.
  4. Simplify the routing product by removing some small lakes.
  5. Simplify the routing product by removing river reaches (increasing size of routing subbasins).
