KeywordsHydrology stream measurements, Statistical analysis

A description and illustration of correlation techniques is presented, that the U.S. Geological Survey is using in making studies of streamflow relationships. The procedures are illustrated by a study of two basins about 68 miles apart, but both having similar hydrologic characteristics, and located in northeastern Utah. Data is tabulated and analyzed on a monthly basis by statistical methods using the usual parameters as a means of comparison.In discussion Mr. R.D. Goodrich presents a solution of streamflow correlation from a different section of the country, but obtained comparable results.
