What is it about?

This study attempts to find out the best-fit probability distribution function to low flows using the up-to-date data of intermittent and non-intermittent rivers in four hydrological basins from different regions in Turkey.

Why is it important?

Frequency analysis of low flows for particular basins in Turkey was dealt separately by different researchers individually considering different data sets. However, a low flow frequency analysis considering various basins at once with recent flow observations does not exist.
