Our research addresses the statistics of annual Colorado River streamflow data.
Department of Natural Resources senior hydrologist, said below-normal rainfall levels during the past 60 days have resulted in below-normal streamflow levels for much of the southern part of the state.
A third study, published in 2016, examined how climate change could alter streamflow in the Northeast and Midwest.
One is reminded of the sorry end that the telemetry system installed in the early 2000s met with; it was supposed to measure the streamflow down to the watercourse level.
To evaluate high-magnitude streamflow for groundwater recharge efforts, we conducted a statistical analysis of historical daily streamflow records to provide insights into its physical availability and spatial distribution (Kocis and Dahlke 2017).
Time series models are often used in hydrology studies to model streamflow series in order to make predictions and to generate synthetic series which are inputs for the analysis of complex water resources systems (see, for example, Salas et al., 1980, 1982; Hosking, 1984; Hipel& McLeod, 1994; Montanari et al., 1997; Hasebe et al., 2000).
Streamflow is a hydroclimatic variable that directly influences drought- and flood-related disasters.
Synthetic data, generated by a stochastic procedure, require calibration of parameters such as the mean, standard deviation and serial autocorrelation of streamflow and rainfall, to observed records.
Considering the criterion cited by Garrido (2003), as being the adopted one in rivers of the country (corresponding to 70% Q), the streamflow that can be currently granted in the Dourados River Basin corresponds to 34.36 [m.sub.3] [s.sup.-1].
The aim of this study is to investigate the variability analysis in low stream flows (1-day, 7-day and 15-day low flows) in 35 streamflow gauging stations of Upper Indus Basin (UIB) for the period 1961-2013.
The six bridges in the pilot study had been either closed or severely stressed by record streamflow within the past 7 years.
