Title: The generation of spring peak flows by short-term meteorological events

Author: Haupt, Harold F.;

Date: 1968

Source: International Association of Scientific Hydrology Bulletin. 13(4): 65-76.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Spring peak flows recorded over a 25-year period in Benton Creek, a small forested watershed in northern Idaho, were studied in their relation to meteorological events. More peak flows were generated by rain-on-snow than by clear-weather snowmelt; the two types of peaks differ in magnitude and in other characteristics. Two rather simple techniques were used to calculate the generative capacity of a rainfall-temperature event and the hypothetical outflow of water from a snowpack during rainy and rainfree periods. Similar data on spring peaks on two regional subbasins were considered also.

Keywords: spring peak flows, snowmelt, rainfall, snowpack
