Abstract

Streams in lowland basins of the Olympic Peninsula, Washington, generally have their low flows in summer and peak flows in winter, whereas streams originating at higher elevations in the mountains have their low flows in late summer-early fall and they have both winter and spring peak flows. Data from long-term stations indicate no important trend in low flows during 1940-73 but they do indicate that low flows generally were lower during the relatively dry 1940 's than during the relatively wet 1950-73 period. The magnitude and frequency of 7-day low flows were estimated for 116 sites either from frequency analyses of a data at long-term stations or from correlation of data at a short-term station with data at an appropriate long-term station.
