Title: Low Flow Frequency Analysis Guidelines for Best Practice

Abstract:
The general issues to be considered when contemplating a frequency analysis are discussed with a strong emphasis on likely sources of error and uncertainty. In order to encourage a consistent methodology to be adopted in the UK a single parametric approach for estimating the probability of occurrence of low flow events is recommended. This approach is based on the use of L-moments with a Pearson Type III probability distribution to estimate the flow - return period relationship for annual minima of different durations.
