Subject Watersheds -- Hawaii -- Oahu. Hydrology -- Hawaii -- Oahu.
Description The analysis of about 240 flood hydrographs of 29 small watersheds on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, shows some unique hydrologic characteristics. A typical Hawaiian small watershed has a small area, flash peak, short time to peak, and small recession constant. Most of the hydrographs have the typical shape of a steep triangle. Based on statistical analysis of the observed flood hydrographs, a linear relationship has been found between peak discharge and the volume of runoff for each watershed....
