Athabasca River basin low flow analysis

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This report identifies historical, annual and open water, low flow sequences for 13 stations in the Athabasca River Basin. Frequency curves are developed which provide an estimate of droughts of a specified exceedance probability. Drought events recorded on the Athabasca River below McMurray with an exceedance probability greater than 0.90 are identified and discussed. The analysis provides low flow information which can be used to determine general management guidelines for the Athabasca River Basin.
