Explanation of the Bankfull Return Interval Exercise
To assess the Bankfull return interval estimate extracted from the WATSTORE data.
- Bankfull Discharge was given as 23,639 cfs
- Graphically, Bankfull Discharge of 23,639 cfs intersected the plotted data line at a return interval of approximately 2 yrs along the WATSTORE data points resorted by probability.
- Tabularly, Bankfull Discharge of 23,639 cfs as interpolated from the probability table resulted in a Bankfull return interval value of 2.1 yrs.
