    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 than , gallons per day) water withdrawals to prevent adverse effects on characteristic fish populations. At sites where long-term streamgages are located, index flows are computed.

AUTOCORRELATION OF RAINFALL AND STREAMFLOW MINIMUMS By NICHOLAS C. MATALAS ABSTRACT Hydrologic time series of annual minimum mean monthly rainfall and annual minimum 1-day and 7-day discharge, con­ sidered as drought indices, were used to study the distribution of droughts with respect to time.

The rainfall data were foundCited by: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Matalas, Nicholas C., Autocorrelation of rainfall and streamflow minimums. Washington, U.S. Govt. Print. Get this from a library. Autocorrelation of rainfall and streamflow minimums. [Nicholas C Matalas; Geological Survey (U.S.),].

Hydrologic time series of annual minimum mean monthly rainfall and annual minimum 1-day and 7-day discharge, considered as drought indices, were used to study the distribution of droughts with respect to time.

The rainfall data were found to be nearly random. The discharge data, however, were found to be nonrandomly distributed in time and generated by a first-order Markov process. The attached autocorrelation plot shows that discharge is correlated with discharge of last day and of two days ago.

In other words, one day and two days lagged discharge time series can be useful factors Autocorrelation of rainfall and streamflow minimums book simulate discharge. Next, we investigate how rainfall impacts discharge. The autocorrelation for both rainfall and streamflow were significantly different from zero, indicating that the sample data are non-random.

Changes in streamflow and lake water level are linked. Due to the substantial decrease of water resources as well as the increase in demand and climate change phenomenon, analyzing the trend of hydrological parameters is of paramount importance.

In the present study, investigations were carried out to identify the trends in streamflow at 20 hydrometric stations and 11 rainfall gauging stations located in Karkheh River Basin (KRB), Iran, in monthly Cited by: Detrended fluctuation analysis of rainfall and streamflow time series Christos Matsoukas and Shafiqul Islam Cincinnati Earth System Science Program, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio Ignacio Rodriguez-Iturbe • Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey by: Rainfall and streamflow summary – May Water Resource Assessment Branch The following rainfall and streamflow summary for May is based on information from the Department of Water, Bureau of Meteorology, Department of Agriculture and Food and the Water Corporation.

Figure 3 shows the 1 month lag autocorrelation values for the 15 test basins. While low flow months tend to have a strong serial correlation the transitional months of May and Jun and the summer months of June, July, August, and Sept. each possess comparatively low correlation values with the respective preceding month’s streamflow.

This study examines the effect of autocorrelation on step and monotonic trends in seasonal and annual rainfall. Initially, for step change, modified-Pettitt test is applied in two ways. First, using the corrected and unbiased trend-free-pre-whitening (TFPWcu) approach.

Second, using a new approach in which time series is modelled by intervention analysis for modified Pettitt by: 6. The intricate relationship between precipitation and streamflow is illustrative of the complexity and changing nature of the water cycle.

These key aspects can be investigated to help understand the water cycle. The duration and intensity of the precipitation, soil porosity, the slope of the ground, and the time of year emerge as some of the.

The autocorrelation structure of monthly streamflows, a nonstationary process, is developed from a mathematical model that assumes that monthly precipitation is an independent series and that the base flow of the stream is derived from a linear aquifer.

Under these assumptions the first‐order autocorrelation coefficients of streamflow are found to vary seasonally, as do other statistics such. Autocorrelation structure of convective rainfall.
