The report gives detailed instructions on preparation of input data for automatic computation of a discharge measurement by the slope-area method. The program follows standardized methods of computing cross section properties and uses multi-section discharge equations. The printout comprises hydraulic properties of each section and computed discharges for each component sub-reach and for the entire reach. One example demonstrates the technique.
