Abstract

"Realizing the need for data on small drainage areas the Missouri Highway Commission in 1947 began a cooperative project with the Water Resources Division of the United States Geological Survey which includes the establishment of small area gaging stations and recording rain gages.

The purpose of this investigation is to study some of the data collected in the few years of operation of these small area stations with the aim of testing some of the hydrologic tools useful in the study of larger drainage basins to determine their applicability on small drainage basins. The relationship between the runoff of large and small drainage basins will be studied to learn how the data collected on the larger drainage basins may be used in the study of small areas. Although the records to be used in this study are too short for the purpose, it is hoped that some facts will be learned which will have application when longer term records become available for study"--Introduction, pages 4-5.
