Curves showing the magnitude and frequency of annual low flow at 85 streamgaging stations located in 17 States east and 5 States west of the Mississippi River have been smoothed and adjusted to one of four long-term periods. They are presented to show the similarity and dissimilarity of curves even in the same State and to provide background information for studies of the statistical properties of low-flow frequency curves and for studies of the relation between hydrologic environment and low flow. The results are presented as greatly reduced graphs to facilitate comparison and are summarized in tables from which expanded graphs can be plotted.
