Abstract

Estimates of flow-duration and low-flow character- istics for the period of record at continuous-record streamflow stations are essential in hydrologic studies and water-resources management. This report provides flow-duration information, in the form of characteristics of the cumulative distribution function of the daily streamflow record, for continuous-record streamflow stations in Tennessee. The report also provides estimates of low flow for 1, 3, 7, 14, 30, 60, and 90 consecutive days for recurrence intervals of 2, 5, 10, and 20 years for the continuous-record streamflow stations. These estimates were used in correlation methods to estimate low flow at partical-record streamflow stations and miscellaneous sites in Tennessee for 1, 3, and 7 consecutive days for a recurrence interval of 10 years and 3 consecutive days for a recurrence interval of 20 years.
