dc.description.abstract The careful analysis and interpretation of hydrographs constructed from charts yielded by automatic recorders erected on experimental catchments will, as has been shown in this account, provide very comprehensive and valuable hydrological data. When the automatic records of discharge are supplemented by adequate observations of extraneous factors, especially climatic factors, their value is still further enhanced The design of experiments using small independent natural catchments and the appropriate statistical treatment of data, obtained by hydrograph analysis, in order to deduce results, have been described by Wicht and Schumann (1957). Similar experimental design and analysis of data can be applied to other experiments where discharge is recorded. It is submitted that such experiments constitute the most fruitful research that can be undertaken on the hydrology of surface water. en
