Abstract

Due to the short term variability of rainfall and runoff events in semiarid environments, low frequency sampling of hydrological processes is often meaningless and precludes accurate quantification. The paper outlines important design considerations in semiarid environments. These are illustrated with reference to the continuous monitoring of rainfall, streamflow and sediment concentration using micro-processor controlled electronic instruments in a research basin of the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa.
