In this study, a general method to calculate cross-sectional bankfull discharge using the simulated stage-discharge relation is outlined briefly, and an integrated method is then proposed for estimating reach-scale bankfull discharge along the Lower Yellow River (LYR). The proposed method integrates a geometric mean based on the log-transformation with a weighted average based on the spacing between 2 consecutive sections, which avoids the shortcomings of previous methods. The post-flood reach-scale bankfull discharges in 3 different channel-pattern reaches of the LYR were estimated annually during the period from 1999 to 2010 using this method, based on surveyed post-flood profiles at 91 sedimentation sections and the measured hydrological data at 7 hydrometric sections. Finally, empirical relationships for different reaches in the LYR were developed between the reach-scale bankfull discharge and the previous four-year average discharge and incoming sediment coefficient during flood seasons
