One of the basic tools utilized in the computation of stream discharges in the unit hydrograph. In cases where no discharge data are available in the immediate area of interest, the derivation of the necessary unit hydrographs have been subjective and unreliable. It would seem that if a more rigorous mathematical approach to the problem were taken, more reliable results might be expected.
