Abstract

All river engineering schemes require flood discharge estimates as part of the design and appraisal process. Research on the interrelationship of stream channel geometry and river discharge has provided the basis for an indirect method of flood estimation, the channel-geometry method, which employs river channel dimensions alone to estimate discharge characteristics at ungauged river sites. Channel-geometry equations are developed empirically by relating streamflow data from gauging stations and channel dimensions measured from natural river reaches in the vicinity of the gauge, and take the form of power function relations
