[H C Riggs; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Description. Reliable estimates of streamflow characteristics are needed for planning, design, and operation of works for providing water supplies and for protection from flooding. This book brings together some of the most useful estimation Book Edition: 1.

Abstract. Streamflow statistics are extensively employed for the management and development of water resources. The magnitude and frequency of streamflows in the Susquehanna River Basin (SRB) are often used by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) and other agencies for the purposes of water resources planning and management (SRBC, ).Cited by: 1.

Precipitation-removed streamflow had fewer trends during the more recent analysis period of WYs – than WYs – for all streamgages in eastern South Dakota.

Upward trends in residuals for March– May mean streamflow were indicated for Skunk Creek at Sioux Falls and the Big Sioux River at Akron, but trends in residuals were not.

The streamflow variables were annual maximum streamflow, date of maximum streamflow, annual minimum streamflow, annual water yield, and streamflow equaled or exceeded 5% of the year, 25% of the year, and 75% of the year.

The watersheds, ranging in area from to ha, had less than 5% of their area in roads. Hydrological drought is a textbook for university students, practising hydrologists and researchers.

The main scope of this book is to provide the reader with a comprehensive review of processes and estimation methods for streamflow and groundwater drought. It includes a qualitative conceptual understanding of drought features and processes, a detailed presentation of estimation methods and Reviews: 1.

Streamflow is one the most important variables controlling and maintaining aquatic ecosystem integrity, diversity, and sustainability. This study identified and quantified changes in 34 hydrologic characteristics and parameters at 30 long term (–) discharge stations in the Southeast Atlantic and Gulf Coast Hydrologic Region (Region 3) using Indicators of Hydrologic Alteration (IHA.

Analysis of hydrologic time series and fish community data across the Tennessee River Valley identified three hydrologic metrics essential to habitat suitability and food availability for insectivorous fish communities in streams of the Tennessee River Valley: constancy (flow stability or temporal invariance), frequency of moderate flooding (frequency of habitat disturbance), and rate of.

Analysis of streamflow characteristics, Tutuila, American Samoa Responsibility: by Michael F. Wong ; prepared in cooperation with the Government of American Samoa Environmental Protection Agency, and American Samoa Power Authority.

The ROI method estimates streamflow characteristics using total drainage area, geology factor, and a soil factor as explanatory variables. Average deleted-residual prediction errors for the West-region ROI equations were 18 and percent for the percent duration and 7-consecutive-day, year recurrence-interval low flow, respectively.

A land-cover scenario analysis assessed the sensitivity of streamflow characteristics to different future land use covers. The results show that an increase in the settlement connectivity can result in an increase in the ratio of surface runoff to streamflow and a decrease in the ratio of dry-season streamflow to wet-season streamflow, and vice.

Hydrologic, geomorphic, and climatic characteristics of 1, undeveloped watersheds across the United States are used to develop regional regression equations that relate the first two moments of annual streamflow to readily measured basin and climate characteristics.

These relations are summarized for each of 18 major U.S. water resource regions.

40th St., Baltimore The report also will be beneficial to other Federal, State, and county agencies and to individuals concerned with water supply and water problems in the Colorado River streamflow characteristics in the report could be useful in many water-related studies that involve the following:Definition of baseline-hydrologic conditions; studies of the effects of man's activities on streamflow; frequency analyses of low and high flows; regional analyses.

In the past, various empirical approaches were employed for drought estimations, but they mostly ended in surprising failures. The classical approaches of multiple regression analysis or Monte Carlo simulation techniques are available to answer questions concerning simultaneous regional and temporal wet and dry spell frequencies.

A total of streamflow characteristics (SFCs) were calculated from daily streamflow values for data from 1, USGS streamgages located on tributaries and streams flowing to the Gulf of Mexico. Streamgages used to calculate SFCs required a minimum of 10 years of continuous daily streamflow data.

Series Title: Geological Survey water-supply paper, Responsibility. There are different indices available for regional quantification of hydrological drought and wet conditions, depending on the type of data accessible.

In this study, hydrological drought and wet conditions were analyzed using streamflow drought index (SDI) at Naula and Kedar stations located in upper Ramganga River catchment, Uttarakhand, India.

Four regional streamflow generation schemes are used to form alternative hypotheses for performing a bottom-up impact assessment in a large-scale water supply system under changing conditions.

Our findings suggest that despite having different levels of realism, none of the schemes can dominate others in terms of reproducing all historical.

Such regional MLRs have been developed to estimate a range of streamflow characteristics in ungaged basins during average conditions for many regions in the United States [Ries et al., ] and. The dominant regions of interannual streamflow variability in the United States are defined, and their seasonality and persistence characteristics identified, using an orthogonally rotated principal components analysis (RPCA) of a climatically sensitive network of stream gages for the period – This classification of streamflow regimes is comprehensive and unique in that separate.

The impacts of two factors on future regional-scale runoff were assessed: the external factor of climate change and the internal factor of a recently completed large-scale water resources project.

A rainfall-runoff model was built (using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool, SWAT) for the Geum River, where three weirs were recently constructed along the main stream.There are opportunities to improve estimates of streamflow characteristics, particularly low flows, through regional analysis.

Plans for intensive data collection during major flood and drought events should be designed both to test scientific hypotheses on river processes, and to support regional analysis and estimation of streamflow information at ungaged sites.Drainage-basin and channel-geometry multiple-regression equations are presented for estimating design-flood discharges having recurrence intervals of 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, and years at stream sites on rural, unregulated streams in Iowa.

Design-flood discharge estimates determined by Pearson Type-III analyses using data collected through the water year are reported for the streamflow.
