Abstract

Low-flow characteristics of streams in the Lake Superior basin include estimates of low-flow frequency and flow duration at 9 gaging stations, low-flow frequency at 16 low-flow partial-record stations and 38 miscellaneous sites; and a list of base-flow discharge measurement is available. The equations were determined from multiple-regression analyses that relate low-flow characteristics. The standard error of estimate is provided for each method of estimating the annual minimum 7-day mean flow below which the flow will fall on the average of once in 2 years and once in 10 years. Standard error provides the user with the expected degree of accuracy for each method. (Woodard-USGS)
