A reliable rating curve is one that is credible, defensible, and minimizes re-work. This free whitepaper outlines 5 modern practices used by highly effective hydrographers to build better stage-discharge rating curves.

  1. Have a Plan – discover how to modernize your approach.
  2. Understand the Science – revisit current principles.
  3. Systematically Analyze Data – use a hydraulics approach.
  4. Manage the Variance – understand sources of variance.
  5. Qualify Derived Discharge Results – use quality grades.
