Overview of a project to evaluate existing methods used by Virginia Dept. of Transportation to estimate flood hydrographs from small drainage basins, and evaluate the use of dimensionless hydrographs to estimate runoff volumes.
Describes the studies of five small watersheds, four in the U.S. and one in Puerto Rico, under the WEBB program to understand the processes controlling water, energy, and biogeochemical fluxes with links to other watershed research.
Explains the strategy that USGS will use to estimate the distribution and abundance of freshwater resources, evaluate factors affecting availability, estimate undeveloped potential resources, and forecasting likely changes due to other factors.
