Abstract of Maryland Geological Survey Report of Investigations No. 35, 1983, Characteristics of Streamflow in Maryland
By D.H. Carpenter
Mean-annual discharge, peak-flow, flood-volume, low-flow, and flow-duration data are presented for 124 continuous-record gaging stations reflecting both the drought of the 1960's and most of the floods of the 1970's. In addition, peak-flow data are presented for 30 crest-stage partial-record stations and selected low-flow data are presented for 111 low-flow partial-record stations. Methods are presented for estimating peak-flow magnitudes and frequencies and low-flow magnitudes and frequencies at ungaged sites. Multiple-regression techniques are used to develop equations which relate physical and climatological features of drainage basins to peak-flow and low-flow discharges for selected recurrence intervals. These regression equations are used to estimate the peak- and low-flow magnitudes at ungaged sites. The methods can be used to evaluate the reliability of the estimates. (USGS)
