Well since a lot of us are currently enrolled in hydrogeology and have taken hydrology in the past I though this would be a cool KMZ/KML file that could be implemented into Google Earth. The website URL is:
The United States Geological Survey distributes stream gage data in KML format on the Google Earth Streamflow KML Files page of its WaterWatch site. The layer displays real-time streamgages colored by streamflow condition in Google Earth in two potential formats a refreshable KML file which refreshes its content every hour or simply a nonrefreshable file (which is just re-created every hour for download again).
This would be very helpful/useful in any hydrgo class merely becasue of the vast quantities of information that is present AND the fact that you can download a refreshable KML file that updates automatically. Being able to access this streamflow data while looking at images of the actual streams and rivers will help to gain a better perspective on the physical nature of rivers and river processes. Not to mention making teachers lives easier by making real-time streamflows available more readily, practically anywhere in the United Satates.
