Abstract:

Determination of minimum streamflows to be left in the stream channel for the sustenance of the downstream habitats becomes a difficult task when quantitative requirements of such habitats are unknown as in the case of a tropical riverine forest habitat. A release pattern that preserves the more deterministic and seasonal features of the streamflow has been adopted in this case study.
