CUAHSI’s HydroClient is a FREE web-based application that allows users to search for, download, and visualize physical, chemical, and biological data from US federal agencies, university researchers, watershed organizations, and citizen science monitoring all in the same format.

Users can also publish their own data with CUAHSI. This could be a good way to fulfill funding agency requirements for data management plans. Publishing data online with CUAHSI allows researchers and interested individuals to easily access data from others around the world. The service also provides citations using a digital object identifier (DOI), which can be used to track usage.

CUAHSI stands for the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc, and is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. CUAHSI’s mission is to shape the future of hydrologic science by:

  • Strengthening multidisciplinary collaboration,
  • Developing and operating research infrastructure, and
  • Promoting water education and training.
