Re-assessment of the monthly naturalized flow record for the River Thames at Kingston since 1883, and the implications for the relative severity of historical droughts

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A rainfall-streamflow modelling methodology is applied to the monthly flow record for the Thames at Kingston, one of the most important long records of river flow, from 1883. The results confirm that low flows during droughts before about 1950 have been underestimated. It is argued that, consequently, recent droughts have been more severe than suggested by analyses of the existing Kingston flow record taken at face value. The distinction between gauged and naturalized flows at Kingston is introduced. The effects over time of agricultural drainage, channel improvements and urbanization are to be considered
