This study focuses on the detection of temporal changes in annual maximum gauge height (GH) across the continental United States and their relationship to changes in short- and long-term precipitation. Analyses are based on 1,805 U.S. Geological Survey records over the 1985–2015 period and are performed using quantile regression. Trends were significant only at a limited number of sites, with a higher number of detections at the tails of the distribution.
