Careful estimates of runoff are required for design of flood-retarding and channel-stabilizing structures, and bridges and culverts in small upstream watersheds; based on field experiments, method is presented for extending period of runoff records based on analysis of existing short term records of rainfall and runoff for watershed, and longer record of rainfall alone; method for developing synthetic unit hydrographs for ungaged areas.
