Characteristics and Estimation of Minimum Streamflows for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador

This thesis describes the characteristics of low streamflows for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. It derives equations for predicting the expected low flows of various durations and return periods on ungauged streams.

The characteristics and estimation of low flows are important for water resources engineering and management applications such as estimating available water supply for municipal and industrial uses, determining the waste-water effluent dilution period of a receiving stream and generally for environmental impact studies.

Included below is an Excel spreadsheet that can be used for the calculations and a User's Guide.
