Explanation of the Bankfull Width Exercise
To assess the Bankfull Width estimate extracted from the 9-207 data.
- Bankfull Discharge was given as 23,639 cfs
- Graphically, Bankfull Discharge of 23,639 cfs intersected the plotted data regression line at a Bankfull Width of approximately 470 ft along the 9-207 data points and of approximately 530 ft along the regressed data line.
- Mathmatically, Bankfull Discharge of 23,639 cfs inserted into the regression equation on the graph resulted in a Bankfull Width value of 519 ft.
