Traverse NHDPlus network downstream with diversions NOTE: This algorithm may not scale well in large watersheds. For reference, the lower Mississippi will take over a minute.
get_DD(network, comid, distance = NULL)
data.frame NHDPlus flowlines including at a minimum: COMID, DnMinorHyd, DnHydroseq, and Hydroseq.
integer identifier to start navigating from.
numeric distance in km to limit how many COMIDs are returned. The COMID that exceeds the distance specified is returned. The longest of the diverted paths is used for limiting distance.
integer vector of all COMIDs downstream of the starting COMID
