Topographical catchment areas of Swiss waterbodies: Receiving watercourses

The average natural monthly and annual flows of the Swiss water network were modelled to determine the corresponding type of flow regime, meaning there is a nationwide data basis on average flow and type of flow regime for medium-sized waterbodies. No flow values are given for waterbodies with catchment areas smaller than 3km2 (limit of application of the underlying flow data set) and greater than or equal to 500km2 (because this assumes that workable gauging stations are usually available). It is generally the case that measurements taken at hydrometric stations represent a better data basis.
