Abstract

The potential for improvement of currently adopted data-transfer mechanisms, which consist of a series of regression equations that relate low-, mean-, and flood-flow characterististics, is evaluated by the technique known as Network Analysis for Regional Information (NARI). This evaluation showed that little improvement in the data-transfer mechanisms can be expected as a result of continued operation of various combinations of gages for as long as 25 years. Therefore, it is proposed that all current gages that are neither managerial nor design specific in purpose (are proposed to be) be discontinued when records adequate for definition of flow characteristics at the gaging site have been collected. Types of data collected, their most commonly used summarizations, and known usage of site-specific data are tabulated. This report cites 14 references. (USGS)
