GENERAL FIELD AND OFFICE PROCEDURES FOR INDIRECT DISCHARGE MEASUREMENTS
1. Purpose and objectives
Overview of the purpose, data collection, and computation of a peak
discharge after passage of the flood.
Indirect measurements of peak discharge are used when current-meter measurements were not made or were not possible. The manual covers:
Subsequent manuals give details of data needed and methods of
computation for the various hydraulic conditions.
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
Best results will be obtained by a person with field experience in
open channel hydraulics.
6. Form of presentation
Handbook in English.
7. Operational experience
These procedures have been used by the U.S. Geological Survey for many
8. Originator and technical support
U.S. Geological Survey.
10. Conditions on use
