Flow Routing

Q t

Procedure to determine the flow hydrograph at a point on a watershed from a known hydrograph upstream As the hydrograph travels, it
 

Q

Q t

Why route flows?
Q

t

Account for changes in flow hydrograph as a flood wave passes downstream This helps in  Accounting for storages  Studying the attenuation of flood peaks
