Abstract:

This program will analyze monthly streamflows at a number of interrelated stations to determine their statistical characteristics and will generate a sequence of hypothetical streamflows of any desired length having those characteristics. It will reconstitute missing streamflows on the basis of concurrent flows observed at other locations and will obtain maximum and minimum quantities for each month and for specified durations in the recorded, reconstituted and generated flows. It will also use the generalized simulation model for generating monthly streamflows at ungaged locations based on regional studies. There are many options of using the program for various related purposes, and it can be used for other variables such as rainfall, evaporation, and water requirements, alone or in combination.
