The objective of this study is the development of analytical procedures and the correlation of hydrologic data to aid in the prediction and control of spring floods in large Upper Midwest watersheds. The study is divided into three phases. The present work (Phase I) has involved (1) the assembly of meteorological and hydrological data concerning past spring floods and new data pertaining to floods during the contract period and (2) procurement and preliminary evaluation of selected mathematical models of watersheds. In future work under phases II and III the data will be subjected to further analysis using available mathematical models, modifications of such models, and new models to assist in synthesizing continuous runoff records.
