Hydrologic Implications of Wind Farm Effect on Radar‐Rainfall Observations

In this study, the authors investigate the hydrologic impact of wind farm clutter in the Multi‐Radar Multi‐Sensor (MRMS) rainfall products. The study uses the probability of detection (POD) method to identify wind farm clutter in data from Iowa for the years 2016 and 2017.

Streamflow Forecasting without Models

The authors used 16 years of river measurements to explore persistence in streamflow forecasting based on the real-time streamflow observations.

Exploring Persistence in Streamflow Forecasting

This paper explores three approaches for streamflow forecasting: simple persistence, gradient persistence, and anomaly persistence. The basin scales clearly have an impact on the persistence modeling and a weaker, but non‐negligible dependence on geometric properties of the river network for a given basin.

Analysis of Stage–Discharge Relationship Stability Based on Historical Ratings

The article explores the stability of the rating curves at six streamflow gauging sites in the state of Iowa, USA, to examine temporal variability of their stage–discharge relationships. The analyzed sites have up to 10 years of rating and shift records. Rating curve shifts reflect the alteration of channel geometry caused by scouring and sediment […]
