suite of 36 observed streamflow statistics, ranging from high to low flows, were computed for 7 continuous-record and predicted for 12 partial-record streamflow-gaging stations in Monroe County, Pa. The predicted statistics for the partial-record stations were determined from regression analyses of intermittent streamflow measurements made at the partial-record stations and concurrent daily mean flows at index continuous-record stations. The prediction methodology has been previously used only for estimating low-flow statistics. Results from this study indicate the methodology may have applicability for predicting high- and intermediate-flow statistics as well. Three sets of base-flow measurements were made at 40 sites in the Paradise and Pocono Creek watersheds to determine subbasin yields and stream reaches gaining or losing flow. Subbasin yields, the base-flow measurements normalized to respective drainage areas, were consistent for each measurement period.
