Abstract

The step-backwater method was investigated as a technique for defining the upper part of stage-discharge relation in a natural channel. State-discharge relations at 28 sites were computed by using this technique and compared with corresponding stage-discharge relations defined by current-meter measurements. In general, the agreement is remarkably good, and the step-backwater method should prove useful at many sites where current-meter measurements are not obtained.
