A Novel Approach To Quantify Streamflow Properties
Presented is a novel approach using autocorrelation lag (k) plots and sequence summations to quantify the streamflow properties of magnitude, frequency, duration, timing and rate of change. The resulting products are a combination of visualizations and tables providing streamflow information across all flow levels and address a fundamental hydrologic property – the temporal configuration of streamflow. Multiple regional case studies are presented to show the utility of this technique in different riverine environments.
Webinar learning objectives
- Identify the additional information available in autocorrelation lag (k) plots.
- Recognize the advantages of a temporal-based approach.
- Describe ecohydrology effects based on information presented.
