Stochastic Analysis of the Truckee River Flow Systemby J. D. Salas,
D. K. Frevert,
Abstract: The Truckee River system is a complex system that involves a number of hydraulic structures such as natural and artificial lakes and reservoirs and diversions. Streamflow data have been measured at a number of gaging stations throughout the upper and lower basins and naturalized inflows to reservoirs and lakes have been calculated. We have undertaken a comprehensive study to analyze the stochastic characteristics of the streamflow data at various time scales. In addition, we have tested several parametric and non-parametric approaches for modeling streamflows at single sites and various time scales. The paper will illustrate the models and the results obtained, and conclusions reached.
