REGIONALIZATION OF LOW-FLOW CHARACTERISTICS OF TENNESSEE STREAMS R. H Bingham. ABSTRACT Procedures for estimating 3-day Z-year, 3-day lo-year, 3-day year, and -/-day lo-year low flows at ungaged stream sites in Tennessee are based on sur- face geology and drainage area Size: 3MB.

[Roy H Bingham; Tennessee. Office of Water Management.; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. The low-flow characteristics of these continuous- and partial-record streamflow gaging stations were utilized in a regional regression analysis to produce equations for estimating the annual, seasonal, bimonthly, and monthly (November through April) 7-day, year low flows and the annual 7-day, 2-year low flow for ungaged streams in the.

Updating Low-Flow Statistics at USGS Streamgages and Regionalization of Selected Low-Flow Characteristics for Alabama Streams.

INTRODUCTION. As part of their mission to protect public health and aquatic ecosystems, Alabama state agencies need accurate and representative streamflow statistics to establish realistic and applicable criteria for both water quality and water quantity (fig.

Basin characteristics were used as independent variables to estimate streamflow characteristics, also in standardized form, following Knight and others ().

Estimated streamflow characteristics include measures of the magnitude, duration, frequency, timing, and rate of change of the annual hydrograph (Knight and others, ). Predictive equations for the harmonic mean flow; the 7-day, 2-year low-few (7Q2); and the 7-day, year low-flow (7Q10) of ungauged Texas streams are developed using multiple regression analysis.

Low-flow characteristics have been determined by the USGS at streamgages in Indiana (Fowler and Wilson, ). Low-flow statistics investigated in that report include the 1- 7- and day.

The paper intends to review the current status of low-flow hydrology — a discipline which deals with minimum flow in a river during the dry periods of the year. The discussion starts with the analysis of low-flow generating mechanisms operating in natural conditions and the description of anthropogenic factors which directly or indirectly Cited by: Valley Stream Flows.

This chart shows the approximate stage and flow of unregulated streams (streams with no dams) at selected sites throughout the Tennessee Valley. Flows are in cubic feet per second. • Estimated values ** Stage is the current depth of the stream at the gauge.

The Tennessee Ecoregion Delineation Project was conducted by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), Division of Water Pollution Control (WPC) and the EPA National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory in Corvalis, Oregon.

The revised single manual, renamed Technical Guidance Manual for Developing Total Maximum Daily Loads, Book II: Streams and Rivers, Part I: Biochemical Oxygen Demand/Dissolved Oxygen and Nutri- ents/Eutrophication, eliminates duplicative information on hydrodynamics and physical characteristics of streams and rivers, and on the interactions of.

Rivers and streams have many of the same economic, recreational, and environmental values and uses as lakes. However, the stresses associated with human use may have begun earlier on rivers because of their importance as transportation routes when roads were few and as sources of power when the Industrial Revolution was in its infancy in the United States.

The United States contains an extraordinarily diverse landscape, with tremendous variation in physical geography, climate, and ecology, as well as parallel diversity in the political and economic landscape.

As a result, approaches to watershed management differ, too. This chapter describes regional. Kentucky Water Resources Annual Symposium Sponsored by Methods for Estimating Low-Flow Frequencies of Unregulated Streams in Kentucky, been paired with three deciduous dominated streams with similar physical characteristics for a total of eighteen study streams.

A 30 m segment (“reach”) was established in each. Riparian vegetation in dry regions is influenced by low-flow and high-flow components of the surface and groundwater flow regimes. The duration of no-flow periods in the surface stream controls vegetation structure along the low-flow channel, while depth, magnitude and rate of groundwater decline influence phreatophytic vegetation in the.

Gates, John B. and Jozsa, Janos Cited by:   The hydrological variables included some describing average flow conditions, flow variability, floods, and low‐flow characteristics. A principal components analysis showed that the interrelationship between many of the hydrological variables was high, and most variables correlated significantly with Principal Component 1 (PC1).Cited by: Quantification of streamflow characteristics in ungauged catchments remains a challenge.

Hydrological modeling is often used to derive flow time series and to calculate streamflow characteristics for subsequent applications that may differ from those envisioned by the modelers. While the estimation of model parameters for ungauged catchments is a challenging research task in itself, it is Cited by:.
