Summer base-flow recession curves for Iowa streams

Open-File Report 66-120
Prepared in cooperation with the Iowa Natural Resources Council



Base-flow recession. curves for the summer months (June through September) were developed in this study for gaging stations on interior Iowa streams having five or more years of record. The tabulated data enables the user, starting with a known base flow at a gage, to estimate base flows for up to 20 days in the future. Rainfall during the period o£ the forecast will require that a new estimate be made after the stream again reaches base flow.
