Abstract

Measurement of streamflow from small watersheds on the Fernow Experimental Forest at Parsons, West Virginia was begun in 1951. Stream-gaging stations are now being operated on 9 watersheds ranging from 29 to 96 acres in size; and 91 watershed-years of record have been collected. To determine how accurately streamflow is being measured at these stations, several of the important factors that influence the accuracy of the records have been studied.
