    METHOD FOR COMPUTING PEAK DISCHARGE FOR WATER QUALITY STORM (Adapted from Claytor and Schueler, ) The peak rate of discharge is needed for the sizing of off-line diversion structures and to design grass channels. Conventional SCS methods underestimate the volume and rate of runoff for rainfall events less than 2". In hydrology, discharge is the volumetric flow rate of water that is transported through a given cross-sectional area. It includes any suspended solids (e.g. sediment), dissolved chemicals (e.g. CaCO 3 (aq)), or biologic material (e.g. diatoms) in addition to the water itself.. Synonyms vary by discipline. For example, a fluvial hydrologist studying natural river systems may define discharge.

    Engineering analyses, assuming that the Rudd Creek debris flow was the year event, used observed characteristics (debris volume, depth distribution, time to peak discharge, speed of debris advance, and duration of discharge) to construct an inflow hydrograph for use with a finite-element grid network, alluvial-fan slope values for the. Hydrologic literature on the Northern Great Plains, including the Canadian Prairies, has mainly focused on Hortonian overland flow as the dominant runoff generation mechanism. This study focused on subsurface water movement and its contribution to streamflow in high-latitude, subhumid, prairie landscapes with flat topography.

    Peak Streamflow for the Nation. Choose Site Selection Criteria: There sites with peak streamflow data. Choose at least one of the following criteria to constrain the number of sites selected. Site -- Location --? State/Territory? Hydrologic Region? Lat-Long box. Site -- Identifier Know: peak flow, lag time, urbanization effects. o Runoff and flooding use hydrograph to plot volume of water over period of time, depict flood intensity graphically o In typical graph, Discharge rises steeply to flood crest (peak discharge), then falls gently o Lag time between storm peak and stream discharge peak.

Consequently, many peak discharges must be determined after the passage of the flood by indirect methods such as slope-area, contracted opening, flow-overdam, or flow-through-culvert.

Indirect determinations of discharge make use of the energy equation for computing streamflow. Determining discharge from stage requires defining the stage-discharge relationship by measuring discharge at a wide range of river stages.

Due to unavailability of sufficient discharge data for many rivers, hydrologists have used indirect methods for deriving flood discharge amount, that is, application of channel geometry and hydrological models, for the estimation of peak discharge in the selected ungauged river basin(s) in their research/project works.

This paper has studied the estimation of peak flood discharge of the Kunur. A key factor controlling both the peak discharge and ultimate flood volume is the ultimate breach depth (Webby, ). In the case of earth-fill dams, breaching nearly always results in erosion to an elevation near the previous river level and, consequently, outflow of all the impounded water.

River discharge is the volume of water flowing through a river channel. This is the total volume of water flowing through a channel at any given point and is measured in cubic metres per second (cumecs). The discharge from a drainage basin depends on precipitation, evapotranspiration and storage factors.

A wetting flow is defined as the discharge required to just inundate or “wet” a site of interest, usually a particular terrace surface or stratigraphic site.

A disturbance flow is the peak discharge used to help define a non-exceedance bound. A disturbance flow therefore is the discharge required to produce a “disturbance” of the site. The. The increases in storm flow discharges can be dramatic, increasing several hundred percent over that of undisturbed watersheds (Gregory and Walling, ; Cooke and Doorkamp, ).

The increase in storm flow discharges can lead to over a sixfold increase in channel–cross-sectional area over that of a natural stream (Knighton, ). channel slope effect on peak discharge of natural streams. the "channel slope method" provides a reasonable approach to the apparent need for a reasonable method of computing peak runoff rates for natural streams.

stream runoff data from the u.s. geological survey were correlated with the slope of the stream. The most reliable GLOF and SHFF peak discharge estimates were upstream from constrictions where there was critical-depth control.

The peak discharge of the GLOF at km from the breached moraine was approximately m 3 /s. At km downstream from the breached moraine, the GLOF discharge was estimated at m 3 /s.

Runoff plots have been an important means to monitor runoff and soil loss since their development by the German scientist Wollny in (Baver ).Peak flow is a key parameter when selecting the size of the trough connecting a runoff plot and a collecting tank and/or the size of the H-flume or other equipment used to measure the flow discharge of runoff plots.Stream Discharge 12/09 Introductory Level Notebook 4 What is a Storm Hydrograph?

After a rainstorm, stream flow follows a predictable pattern in which it rises sharply in response to the storm and then falls, usually more gradually, in the hours or days following the storm. Additionally, discharge varies naturally with the seasons.

Higher.One method of studying stream flows involves calculating the discharge of a particular stream or river. Discharge is the measure of the volume of water that passes a point in a given period of time, usually noted in cubic metres per second, m3/s (there are litres in a cubic metre).

The discharge can be obtained by a couple of different.
