Abstract

Analyses of low-flow data and tabulation of computed low-flow frequency are presented for all stream sites in Georgia where suitable flow records have been collected. These include 147 continuous-record gaging stations and 102 partial-record gaging stations. Frequency records for gaging stations with short records have been adjusted where possible so as to more nearly represent results that would have been obtained from longer records. Areal variations in low-flow characteristics are indicated and the relationship of these characteristics to geology are discussed. Streamflow (per square mile of drainage area) during dry weather periods is generally greatest in the Blue Ridge province in the northern part of the State and in the upper zone of the Coastal Plain below the Fall Line. It is generally smallest in the lower zone of the Coastal Plain. Low streamflow in the Valley and Ridge and the Piedmont provinces is generally in an intermediate range. (Woodard-USGS)
