Summary

In February, 1949, Mr. J. V. B. Wells, Chief of the Surface Water Branch, appointed a committee of three hydraulic engineers assigned to the Washington office to make a comparative study of the relative merits of the mean-section and mid-section methods of computing discharge measurements. this was done in order that there might be a basis for either adhering to the present "official" method, or adopting another method as the "official" one. This study is based on a collection of field data consisting of discharge measurements made with approximately four times the usual number of observations. There was a total of 213 of these special measurements made by all the district offices. The two methods of computation were examined as to [...]
