**Using Flow Duration Curves to Determine Basin Characteristics and Estimate Flow**

This notebook uses the Scientific Python (scipy) stack tools to generate flow duration curves from current USGS NWIS data.

Using recipes from this notebook, you can make:

- USGS Station Summaries
- Flow duration curves
- Iterative import and compilation of USGS station information and data
- boxplots using pandas
- iterative charts (one monthly summary boxplot per station)
- Gantt charts of USGS stations

## Background

Import necessary packages. `ulmo`

is not a standard package and will have to be loaded into your local python repository for some of these functions to work ...
