Techniques for Hydrograph Synthesis Based on Analysis of Data from Small Drainage Basins in Texas
The report by the Committee on Surface Water Hydrology of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) (2) has pointed out that one of the areas in hydrology lacking adequate research is the investigation of runoff from small areas. As indicated by Meier (22, p. 55) and Barnes (4, p. 55), more work is needed for establishing lag time versus basin characteristics relationships Meier also stated that a method should be perfected for fitting unit hydrograph data to mathematical functions in order that computers can be used to generate synthetic unit hydrographs. This study has considered all three of these related areas.
