Development of Regional Curves Relating Bankfull-Channel Geometry and Discharge to Drainage Area for Hydrophysiographic Regions in Wyoming
The Watershed Program in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Wyoming Water Science Center proposes to develop regional curves that relate bankfull channel dimensions and discharge to drainage area for hydrophysiographic regions in Wyoming where data are currently lacking. Regional curves are useful aids for estimating bankfull discharge and related channel dimensions at ungaged sites, particularly where field indicators of bankfull stage are not apparent, such as actively incising or degrading stream channels. The intended use of regional curves is to validate estimates of bankfull discharge needed to conduct channel departure analyses from reference conditions (Rosgen, 2006). A scientific investigations report presenting regional curves for the Rocky Mountains Hydrologic Region in Wyoming was released in 2012.
