Ziemer, and Jack Lewis ABSTRACT: The effects of multiple logging disturbances on peak flows and suspended sediment loads from second-growth redwood watersheds were approximately additive. estimates of peak runoff rates are considered good for an ungaged watershed if they are within ±30%. However, as watersheds become smaller, such as the typical size modeled for stormwater management purposes, the estimate accuracy for hydrologic models decreases.

The primary method, in use since the ’s, is the Modified Rational Method (MODRAT). MODRAT is based on the Rational Method, but uses a. If the relations between the magnitude of peak rates of runoff and these two sets of drainage characteristics were also different, then those differences might very well account for the large errors in estimates of peak rates experienced for a small percentage of sample watersheds in many peak rate studies, referred to in the introduction of.

Values of the coefficient C can be obtained with reasonable accuracy from the relationship, C. Excerpt from A Method for Estimating Volume and Rate of Runoff in Small Watersheds Ven Te Chow has described many methods which have been used for determining waterway areas and the design of drainage control structures in small watersheds Some of these methods have been used by the Soil Conservation Service (scs) for estimating peak discharge : K.

Kent. When modeling large watersheds, the subcatchment sizes can influence results. If heterogeneous land uses are “lumped” together into large subcatchments, the models may not accurately account for the “flashy” nature of runoff from impervious surfaces and peak rates of runoff may be underestimated.

A method is developed for estimating peak runoff rates and return periods from agricultural watersheds by analyzing precipitation and runoff data, and by using the CREAMS model. Dimensionless Huff curves are used with the CREAMS model to synthesize the frequency distribution of peak runoff rates from an experimental watershed at Coshocton, Ohio.

In general, the more impervious watersheds produced higher peak rates, runoff volumes, and runoff ratios than the less impervious watersheds, as would be expected. The median runoff ratio (based on more than 60 events) for the most impervious watershed (% impervious) waswhereas the median runoff ratio for the least impervious.

A simple method is presented for the determination of the peak rate of runoff and design hydrograph from small watersheds of drainage area up to five square miles.

The principle of this study is to describe flood hydrographs observed on small watersheds by a Pearson Type III function, which has three by: 1.

A microcomputer program is being prepared for the upcoming revision of the Soil Conservation Service's 'Urban Hydrology for Small Watersheds,' Technical Release Number 55 (TR).

They are also used to show the hydrologic effects of existing or proposed watershed projects and land use changes. Development of hydrograph relations.

Providing safe and wholesome water in sufficient quantity on a sustainable basis remains elusive for large population especially in semiarid regions and hence water balance estimation is vital to assess water availability in a watershed.

The water balance study is formulated to assess the runoff that can be harvested for effective utilization. The study area is Urapakkam watershed with a chain Cited by: 1.

Cronshey.Surface runoff (also known as overland flow) is the flow of water that occurs when excess stormwater, meltwater, or other sources flow over the Earth's can occur when the soil is saturated to full capacity, and rain arrives more quickly than soil can absorb it.

Surface runoff often occurs because impervious areas (such as roofs and pavement) do not allow water to soak into the ground.
