  Name: UK National River Flow Archive
  Description: The National River Flow Archive (NRFA) is the UK's focal point for hydrometric data, providing stewardship of, and access to, daily and monthly river flow data for some 1500 gauging stations nationally. In addition a range of information concerning the catchments of these gauging station is available either in the form of statistics or spatial data, including digitised catchment boundaries. The NRFA is mandated by UK government (Defra) and the devolved administrations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to provide data and information on water resources nationally. The NRFA is a major component of the National Water Archive and part of CEH's Environmental Information Data Centre.
