Impact of Streamflow Persistence on Hydrologic Design 1

  author={Ellen M. Douglas and S. M. ASCE and Richard M. Vogel and Charles Kroll},
Conventional methods for estimating the average return period, E(T), and failure risk,R, generally ignore the impact o persistence in annual streamflows on associated probabilistic statements and streamflow statistics. Recent evaluations of observations indicate statistically significant serial correlations ~persistence ! associated with annual low flows in the United States. define the average occurrence interval E(T) as the expected time to the first event, and we present a method for… CONTINUE READING
