Seasonal Hydrographs of Kenai River and Sub-Basins

Seasonal hydrographs of the mainstem Kenai River and three tributaries representing lowland (Beaver Creek), montane (Russian River), and glacially influenced montane (Ptarmigan Creek) flow regimes. Dark lines represent daily mean discharge standardized by drainage area, and shaded bands represent variability (±1 SD) among years. Data record covers 69 years for the main stem and 8–12 years for each tributary. The large spike in December reflects a single storm event captured in the for the main stem and 8–12 years for each tributary.
