Streamflow data in cumecs generated from running MIKE-SHE coupled with MIKE HYDRO River system to simulate the hydrological response of subcatchments to the four climate-Invasive Alien Tree (climate-IAT) states at a daily time step.

See Holden et al 2022 for full details: Holden, P.B., Rebelo A.J., Wolski, P., Odoulami, R.C., Lawal, K.A., Kimutai J., Nkemelang, T. and New, M.G. (2022) Nature-based solutions in mountain catchments reduce impact of anthropogenic climate change on drought streamflow. Communications Earth & Environment. The biased corrected driving rainfall and reference evapotranspiration for the hydrological model are also included. The driving rainfall data is included as a separate column alongside the streamflow data. The driving reference evapotranspiration data is included as a separate csv.

Example code for generating the QR%, % Change in Q and QR% point difference from the csv data provided is also included.
