source_file: This product is generated from yearly GRDC_Aiguo observations
title: derived GRDC Aiguo Runoff Dataset
Approach: I read the variable (FLOW) from the original data file, then pick up top 50 global largest rivers based on TRIP riverbasins. I also converted river flow from river gauge stations to river mouthes by using ratio of volume between river mouth and station (ratio_m2s), then I converted the unit from m3/s to Kg/m2/s by using drainage area at river mouth (area_mou), finally I saveed the data in NetCDF format by each month and each year.
Temporal resolution: monthly
General information: This product was derived from global 925 rivers gauge observations from Dai and Trenberth (2002).
Spatial resolution: river gauge observation
