Average annual runoff in Canada, 1971 to 2013 This product provides runoff data with each contour line corresponding to an average amount of annual runoff (in millimeters). Runoff data were derived from discharge values from hydrometric stations with natural flows. Not all years are included for every region of the country due to data quality and availability issues. Data cover the period 1971 to 2013 for the south and 1971 to 2004 for the north. These files were produced by Statistics Canada, Environment, Energy and Transportation Statistics Division, 2017, based on data from Environment and Climate Change Canada, 2015, Water Survey of Canada, Archived Hydrometric Data (HYDAT), www.ec.gc.ca/rhc- wsc/default.asp?lang=En&n=4EED50F1-1 (accessed December 3, 2015); Spence, C. and A. Burke, 2008, “Estimates of Canadian Arctic Archipelago runoff from observed hydrometric data,” Journal of Hydrology, Vol. 362, pp. 247–259. For more information about methods, results and limitations see Appendix D in Statistics Canada, 2017, “Freshwater in Canada,” Human Activity and the Environment, Catalogue no. 16-201-X. The purpose of the dataset is to present runoff values as derived from Statistics Canada's Water Yield Model on a national scale map of 1:32,000,000. This product is intended to be used for reference or mapping purposes. The product ends at the shoreline of Canada as defined by the drainage region boundaries supplied for drainage regions of Canada. It does not include the Arctic Islands. 2018-08-30 Statistics Canada francois.soulard@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentGeographic dataPrecipitationWaterWater supplySurface water Shapefile (English)SHP http://www.statcan.gc.ca/access_acces/alternative_alternatif.action?l=eng&loc=m-c-2.1.zip Shapefile (French)SHP http://www.statcan.gc.ca/access_acces/alternative_alternatif.action?l=fra&loc=m-c-2.1.zip Average annual runoff in Canada, 1971 to 2013ESRI REST https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/rest/services/StatCan/Runoff_Ruissellement_en/MapServer/0 Average annual runoff in Canada, 1971 to 2013ESRI REST https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/rest/services/StatCan/Runoff_Ruissellement_fr/MapServer/0 Average annual runoff in Canada, 1971 to 2013WMS https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/services/StatCan/Runoff_Ruissellement_en/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Average annual runoff in Canada, 1971 to 2013WMS https://servicesweb.cartes.canada.ca/arcgis/services/StatCan/Runoff_Ruissellement_fr/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html File geodatabase (English)FGDB/GDB http://ftp.cartes.canada.ca/pub/statcan_statcan/Surface-water_Eau-de-surface/surface-water_eau-de-surface/Runoff_Ruissellement_en.gdb.zip File geodatabase (French)FGDB/GDB http://ftp.cartes.canada.ca/pub/statcan_statcan/Surface-water_Eau-de-surface/surface-water_eau-de-surface/Runoff_Ruissellement_fr.gdb.zip Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada, 1971 to 2013, release in the The Daily, Statistics Canada’s official release bulletin (overview) (English)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170321/dq170321b-eng.htm Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada, 1971 to 2013, release in the The Daily, Statistics Canada’s official release bulletin (overview) (French)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170321/dq170321b-fra.htm Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (English)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-eng.htm Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (French)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-fra.htm Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (English)PDF http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-eng.pdf Human Activity and the Environment 2016: Freshwater in Canada (full publication) (French)PDF http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/16-201-x2017000-fra.pdf Map of Average annual runoff in Canada, 1971 to 2013, release in Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada, 1971 to 2013 (English)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/2017000/sec-2/m-c/m-c-2.1-eng.htm Map of Average annual runoff in Canada, 1971 to 2013, release in Human Activity and the Environment: Freshwater in Canada, 1971 to 2013 (French)HTML http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/16-201-x/2017000/sec-2/m-c/m-c-2.1-fra.htm
