Streamflow iPhone App: Mobile Monitoring of Streams and Rivers

The first time I met Bill McKibben, he was giving a speech and I have a vivid memory of him describing the cycle that happens as the ice melts from the world’s glaciers, antarctica and the arctic: all that water evaporates and has to come down somewhere as rain. So with record flooding on the Mississippi and elsewhere, the new free iPhone app Streamflow is a good tool for anyone who needs to monitor river heights during flood events. However, it’s also useful to keep an eye on water levels for fish. Streamflow displays real-time stream heights and flow data read from U.S. Geological Survey river gaging sites tracking 9,935 water flow and discharge sites from gauge stations throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and even Antarctica. It displays current measurements and provides interactive charts plotting one, seven, 30 or 90 day views.
