Abstract(unpublished)
The map shows the location and the number of years of recorded data for the Water Survey of Canada streamflow gauging stations and the Quebec Department of Natural Resources stations. Almost 9 per cent of all the world's river water which flows to the oceans has its source within Canada's boundaries. Because water is an extremely valuable natural resource, it is vital to monitor Canada's rivers for a continuous assessment of streamflow distribution and its variability. The stations depicted on the map represent points where water level measurements are made and converted to streamflow discharge (in cubic feet per second or cubic metres per second). Water levels, called stage, are translated to discharge by means of a stage-discharge curve or rating curve, which is established by measuring discharges for various stages as they occur throughout the year. The individual discharge measurements are made by determining the velocity profile or mean velocity for incremental portions of the total river cross
