Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


The paper describes discharge-frequency relationships in distributary flow systems. The stream network that makes up the flow system is described in terms of how the various stream segments or links are connected. There are four types of end points of a link. The upper most point of the single stream is the origin. The lowermost points of the network are the outlets. All other end points divide two links defining the upslope limit and downslope limit of one or two links.
