In previous studies, a method was developed for predicting the effects of channel characteristics, including watershed size and shape, on peak flow from small watersheds. The method was incomplete, however, since it lacked a working method of estimating the time parameter for ungaged watersheds. Therefore, the first objective of this study discussed was to satisfy this need. The second objective was to test the overall method as a means of predicting peak flow for small ungaged watersheds, given the runoff volume. (Author Modified Abstract)
