Abstract or Summary
  • A methodology for estimating streamf low characteristics on Ungaged streams was developed for northwestern Oregon. Basin area and basin area multiplied by the square root of relief were found to be effective independent variables in regression models for estimating the average annual flow, the average daily flood with a two-year recurrence interval, and the seven day average low flow with a twoyear recurrence interval. A method for constructing synthetic flowduration curves from estimates of these three flow characteristics is described. These synthetic flow-duration curves provide important information for assessing hydropower potential for micro-hydro sites in this region.
