2010b) first recognized a rising limb of a minor positive excursion, which they named the ELKHORN excursion.
2004) while others reported that DOC typically peaked prior to the peak in discharge on the rising limb of the snowmelt hydrograph in forested mountainous catchments of Colorado (Hornberger et al.
Sampling intervals ranged from 5-10 h and were calculated based on historical discharge data to collect samples at a higher temporal resolution on the rising limb and peak of the hydrograph than the falling limb.
The time to peak is defined as the time between the start of the rising limb and the peak in discharge (Poor & McDonnell 2007).
2] concentrations showed a quick decrease in concentration on the rising limb of the hydrograph with a progressive return to pre-event concentration levels on the falling limb of the hydrograph.
concentrations showed an initial decrease in concentration on the rising limb of the hydrograph and then a sharp increase on the falling limb of the hydrograph to levels higher than before the storm started.
58 gr/s/m observed during the similar level of discharge at the end of rising limb (time elapsed 50-60 minutes or between T50 - T60).
Overall, the average transport rate during 60 minutes of the rising limb (time elapsed T0 - T60) was 0.
These grains started to appear in transport at time elapsed 30 minutes of the rising limb (see Table 3).
In the last 10 minutes rising limb of stability test ST-3 the proportion of transport in the fine mode to the total transport was 5.
The similarity of both stability tests is that the falling limb transported more bed load than the rising limb.
The hydrograph's remaining vertices were connected to the origin of the rising limb and a terminal point on the falling limb.
