    In general, the measurement errors come from observations of stream stage, periodic measurements of streamflow, and development of a rating curve to convert stage to discharge (Hamilton and Moore. CHAPTER 9. INDIRECT DETERMINATION OF PEAK DISCHARGE (from S.E. Rantz, , USGS WSP ) INTRODUCTION. During floods, it is frequently impossible or impractical to measure the peak discharges when they occur because of conditions beyond control. The USGS and DEQ cooperate to publish the annual USGS State data report, "Water Resources Data-Virginia;" this two-volume publication includes streamflow data collected at the streamflow-gaging stations, chemical data collected at 19 streamflow-gaging stations, and ground-water data collected from more than wells located in Virginia.

Streamflow, or channel runoff, is the flow of water in streams, rivers, and other channels, and is a major element of the water is one component of the runoff of water from the land to waterbodies, the other component being surface flowing in channels comes from surface runoff from adjacent hillslopes, from groundwater flow out of the ground, and from.

The second edition of Streamflow Measurement meets the demands of engineers and managers in the water industry on how to obtain information on the flow in the world's rivers in view of the decreasing availability of usable water.

It deals with all aspects of establishing, operating and maintaining streamflow measurement stations to ensure they provide maximum information. The measurement of streamflow is very critical to hydraulic engineers and hydrologists as it provides vital information for environmental monitoring issues connected to water resources.

The objective of this study is to examine various means of measuring streamflow specifically application of hydraulic structures installed across the direction of : Adeniyi Adeogun, Abdul Rasak Apalando Mohammed. Discharge Measurement Data.

Definition of Streamflow Streamflow, or discharge, is defined as the volumetric rate of flow of water (volume per unit time) in an open channel Streamflow in the USGS is usually expressed in English dimensions of cubic feet per second (ft3/s) or CFS.

Streamflow is the volumetric discharge expressed in volume per unit time (typically cubic feet per second (ft 3 /s) or cubic meters per second (m 3 /s)) that takes place in a stream or channel and varies in time and space.

Excess streamflow can create a flooding hazard, and although excess streamflow is a natural occurrence and healthy for the ecosystem, mitigation.

The use of the index-velocity method has benefitted the USGS streamgaging program by providing a means to obtain more accurate streamflow data in challenging measurement environments.

In Michigan, index flow Q50 is a streamflow characteristic defined as the minimum of median flows for July, August, and September. The state of Michigan uses index flow estimates to help regulate large (greater thangallons per day) water withdrawals to prevent adverse effects on characteristic fish populations.

Long-term streamflow information is critical for use in several water-related areas that are important to humans and wildlife, including water management, computation of flood and drought flows for water infrastructure, and analysis of climate-related.

Chapter 5 Streamflow Data (vi, NEH, September ) 5–1 Chapter 5 Streamflow Data Introduction Streamflow data collected by various agencies de-scribe the flow characteristics of a stream at a given point.

Normally, data are collected by using a measur-ing device commonly called a stream gage. Streamflow data are used to indicate. If possible, the section of the stream used for this measurement should be relatively stable, i.e., not actively downcutting or meandering.

In addition, it would be advisable to select a stream where the flow is nearly parallel to the stream channel and not immediately after or before a meander or rapid. A stream gauge, streamgage or gauging station is a location used by hydrologists or environmental scientists to monitor and test terrestrial bodies of water.

Hydrometric measurements of water level surface elevation ("stage") and/or volumetric discharge (flow) are generally taken and observations of biota and water quality may also be made.
