Abstract
  • Summer low flow characteristics of six forest streams in Northeast Oregon were examined using long term streamflow records. Time series and trend analysis revealed highly significant (alpha=O.O1) increasing trends in summer low flow over the period of record on four of the selected streams, and significant (alpha=O.05) year-to-year dependence on three of the selected streams. Low flow frequency curves, flow duration curves, and flow-date curves were constructed for each stream from the long term flow records. A simple method of forecasting streamflow recessions using flow records is developed resulting in improvement over the average in forecasting recession volume, but little improvement in forecasting end-of-water year flow levels.
