Abstract

This paper presents the analysis of pre- and post-dam hydrologic changes from dams that cover the spectrum of hydrologic and climatic regimes across the United States. The overall goals are to document the type, magnitude, and direction of hydrologic shifts because of impoundment. To assess hydrologic changes associated with dams, the AA. applied a hydrologic model, the Indicators of Hydrologic Alteration (IHA), supplemented with orientation statistics for certain hydrograph parameters. The results indicate that the major pulse of dam construction during the previous century has modified hydrologic regimes on a nationwide scale, for large and small rivers
