Abstract : The volume is part of a 12-volume report entitled, 'Hydrologic Engineering Methods for Water Resources Development', prepared by The Hydrologic Engineering Center as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' participation in the International Hydrological Decade. Volume 2 describes methods and procedures for managing hydrologic data in a systematic manner, techniques for estimating missing portions of hydrologic records, and techniques for generating synthetic hydrologic data. A generalized computer program description, 'Monthly Streamflow Simulation', is included as part of this volume. This program will analyze monthly hydrologic data at a number of interrelated stations, generate sequences of hypothetical hydrologic data, and reconstitute missing hydrologic data on the basis of concurrent data observed at other locations.
