Missouri River Streamflow-Gaging Station

Bismarck, North Dakota

Telemetered systems are used when current or real-time information on stream-gage height, discharge, or weather or water-quality parameters is needed.  Real-time gage-height information is necessary for maintaining reservoir levels, forecasting floods, and other purposes.  The most common telemetered system is the satellite data-collection system.  From an antenna attached to the roof of a gage house, electronic signals are transmitted to a satellite orbiting the earth.  The data then are retransmitted to receivers at various locations throughout the country.  These receivers then transmit data to USGS computer systems that make the data available on the Internet.

Real-Time Streamflow Data Available on the World Wide Web
