These transformations assist in linearizing the plot and so aid estimation from the curve of discharges for given frequencies. If the logarithms of the daily discharges are distributed normally then the plotted points define a straight line. Within Institute of Hydrology flow duration software, all daily data from a specified period are pooled and the cumulative frequencies are determined based on the grouping of flows within 400 classes. The classes have logarithmic boundaries, the lowest boundary being 1% of mean flow and the highest boundary being 1000% of the mean flow.

20. 30. 1 70 80. 90. 95. 99. 4 Exanpleflow duration curves flow regime and a high variance of daily flows. Note that the discharge axis is standardised by the mean flow. This facilitates comparisons between catchments because it reduces differences in the location of the flow duration curve which are caused by differences in the mean annual runoff. This standardisation may also reduce the bias of estimated percentiles caused by above or below average flows during the period of record. Curves may also be obtained from a derived hydrograph obtained by applying a D day moving average to the original hydrograph.

Gauged values of MAM(7) are tabulated in Appendix 2 and gauged values of MAM(D) are tabulated in Appendix 5. 28 Within Institute of Hydrology low flow frequency software, missing data criteria were set to be a maximum of 7 missing days in any water year (1 Oct - 30 Sept). If any water year contained more than 7 missing days then all data from that year were excluded from analysis. This ensures that annual minima are not selected from years containing significant gaps in the data and that they are expressed as a percentage of the mean flow using a common period from which both minima and mean were calculated.
