Known events which happened on October 1st before 9am


The Water Year in the UK runs from 9am of the 1st October of a given year to 8:59am of the 1st October of the next year. Since the WINFAP files contain information only on the date of the annual maximum (and not time) it is possible that an event is mis-classified when using the water_year function. This dataset lists the events which are known to have happened to October 1st before 9am. This is used to correct the WaterYear information in these known cases in the read_amax and get_amax functions. For some stations events on October 1st have been deemed as annual maxima only in some winfap releases. They are maintained in the dataset in the event that somebody read old winfap files.




A data frame with 36 rows and 3 variables:

the correct water year for the peak flow
