MARDAO: Monthly Anomalies of River Discharge on Atlantic Ocean

Published: 28 October 2021| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/pn5b35vn6s.1


This dataset contains the monthly runoff anomalies for all the stations of the rivers that flow into the Atlantic Ocean and its adjacent seas. This dataset has been generated from monthly runoff data from the GRDC database available at: The Stationlist directory contains the list of station codes, station names, rivers to which they belong and the owner of the data. A map with the location of the stations and an example figure of the use of this dataset can be found in the figures directory. Finally, in the matlab directory there is a matlab script that shows how to extract and plot the anomaly data. The authors express their thanks to the TRIATLAS project (Tropical and South Atlantic climate-based marine ecosystem predictions for sustainable management), to Tropical Atlantic Interdisciplinary Laboratory on physical, biogeochemical, ecological and human dynamics (IJL TAPIOCA) and the Brazilian Research Network on Global Climate Change (Rede CLIMA).
