Flow Routing in the Susquehanna River Basin: Part IV--Routing Reservoir Releases in the Eastern Susquehanna River Basin in New York State

Description: From abstract: "Flow-routing models were developed for six reaches of major streams in the eastern Susquehanna River basin in New York State and were used to trace releases of water from East Sidney Lake and Whitney Point Lake to gaged points downstream." It includes maps, graphs, and tables.

Techniques for Estimating Magnitude and Frequency of Floods on Rural Unregulated Streams in New York State Excluding Long Island

Description: Abstract: Techniques are presented for estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods at ungaged sites on unregulated rural streams in New York, excluding Long Island. Discharge-frequency data and basin characteristics of 220 gaging stations in New York and adjacent states were used in multiple linear regression analysis to develop equations for floods that range in recurrence interval from 2 to 100 years. Separate equations were developed for northern, southeastern, and western regions of New York. Drainage area is the independent variable needed in all equations; other variables needed, depending on region, are main-channel slope, storage index, and mean annual precipitation. A method is given for obtaining improved discharge-frequency relationships qt gage sites by weighing log-Pearson Type III and regression estimates according to their variances. Basin characteristics, log-Pearson Type III statistics, and regression and weighted estimates of the discharge-frequency relationship are tabulated for the New York gaging stations used in the regression analysis.
