This workshop is for anyone working with streamflow time-series where the classic properties of magnitude, frequency, duration, timing, and change-in-flow (a.k.a. flashiness) are important to quantify. Specifically, the workshop will give an overview of autocorrelation lag(k) plots and their conventional use. The discussion will then transition to sequence summations and how these values are tied to streamflow properties.
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
