Flow statistics used to develop building blocks recommendations for big cypress

Flow Statistics used to Develop Building Blocks Recommendations for Big Cypress

  • Indicators of Hydrologic Alteration – Environmental Flow Component (EFC) Appendix D

  • 2 and 10 year recurrence interval flows Appendix E


Indicators of hydrologic alteration environmental flow component efc

Indicators of Hydrologic Alteration – Environmental Flow Component (EFC)

  • Divides the hydrograph into high flow (>75th percentile) and low flow (<50th percentile)

  • High flows are further divided into Large Floods (10 year recurrence), Small Floods (2 year recurrence) and High Flow Pulses (rise faster than 25% and fall faster than 10%)

  • Low flows also include Extreme Low Flows (<10th percentile)

  • Percentile statistics of the low flows for each month are also generated

2 year recurrence interval 1 5 4 year

2 – year recurrence interval (1.5 - 4 year)

  • Bank Full Flow – Flushing accumulated fine sediments from gravel, scouring pools, building riffles, removing vegetation from active channel inundating bars and maintaining channel capacity.

  • Effective Discharge – Flow that transports the largest amount of sediment when averaged over time.


High flow calculations

High Flow Calculations

  • IHA calculates high flow stats based on daily average flows, by default the 2 year and 10 year recurrence intervals.

  • PeakFQ – USGS program to Flood Frequency using log-pearson Type III regression based on instantaneous annual peaks
