Abstract:

Watershed modelling of gaged streams in the Chemung and Upper Susquehanna River Basins was attempted using the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers HEC-1, Flood Hydrograph Package. The Clark method of unit hydrograph theory and the initial and constant loss rate approach were used in this analysis. Parameters were derived from a total of 52 storm events for nine watersheds. Regression equations were derived relating the Clark unit hydrograph parameter to physical basin characteristics. Regional constant loss rates were established.
