Abstract: Streamflow distribution probabilities are often involved in the stochastic analysis of water resources systems. Limited by data availability, certain probability terms can hardly be abstracted directly from historical records with adequate precision to facilitate meaningful system analysis. This paper presents some methods for deriving the distribution probabilities of seasonal streamflows from historical records with moderate sample size.
