The hydrobr package was developed to help users select, download and clean data from pluvio- and fluviometric stations from the Brazilian National Water Agency (pt: Agncia Nacional de guas - ANA). The data is made available by ANA and is one of the main databases for hydrological studies in Brazil. These is a beta version (version, which was tested by the developers in few Brazilian basins. Please ensure that processings are correct in your study case by a cross check and let us know. Functions for statistical analyses are currently under development.

This is a voluntary initiative from a few Brazilian hydrologists and part of the hydroversebr. The package improvement is open to enthusiasts. Contact us if you want to be part of the team and help us develop this project.
