HiWATER: Dataset of hydrometeorological observation network (No.8 runoff observation system of Gaotai bridge on the Heihe River, 2014)

This dataset contains data on river water level and flow velocity at No.8 in the intensive runoff observation in the middle reaches of Heihe River runoff from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. The observation point is located at Heihe Bridge, Gaotai County, Zhangye City, Gansu Province. The riverbed is sediment and the section is stable. The latitude and longitude of the observation point is N39°23'22.93", N 99°49'37.29", the altitude is 1347 meters, and the river channel width is 210 meters. The water level observation is measured by SR50 ultrasonic range finder with a frequency of 30 minutes. The data  declaration includes the following two parts:

Water level observation, observation frequency 30 minutes, unit (cm); data covering time period from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014;

Flow observation, unit (m3); monitoring flow and obtaining water level flow curve according to different water levels. The process of the runoff changing is obtained by observing the water level process. The No. 8 point-Gaotaiqiao section only monitored the water level because the water body of the wetland park basically stopped flowing. The missing data is uniformly represented by the string -6999.
