Abstract: Generation and use of nonsequential series of low-flow events, for improved mass-type analysis of proposed impounding reservoir; determination of reservoir capacity necessary to meet particular gross draft rates during critical droughts having various recurrence intervals; determination of length of critical drawdown periods by mass-type analysis for selection of optimum economic reservoir design.
