COMPUTATION OF CONTINUOUS RECORDS OF STREAMFLOW
1. Purpose and objectives
To describe how continuous records of discharge are computed from continuous records of river stage, discharge measurements, and other field
The manual describes the computation procedures used and some details of field operations. It covers stage data from digital recorder stations,
chart-recorder stations, and nonrecording stations.
Stage record, discharge measurements, and other field data relating to
Daily discharges for the period analysed and maximum and minimum
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
Reliability of the computed discharges depends on the quality of the gauge site, the reliability of the stage record, the number and distribution (in stage) of discharge measurements, and the experience of
6. Form of presentation
