SURFACE WATER BRANCH TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM NO. 84.01

Subject:  PUBLICATION--U.S. Geological Survey WRI Report 83-4160 "A Digital
                       Model for Streamflow Routing by Convolution Methods"
                       by W. H. Doyle, Jr., J. O. Shearman, G. J. Stiltner,
                       and W. R. Krug

The subject report documents the one-dimensional streamflow routing model
CONROUT.  CONROUT is being used in the Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of the
Stream-Gaging Program as an alternative method of generating streamflow
information at gaging stations.  This streamflow routing model can also
be used to derive homogeneous streamflow statistics for watersheds having
varying degrees of regulation.  The report includes both hypothetical and
field application examples that provide guidelines for using the model.

Currently, the model is available on the Geological Survey's AMDAHL computer
and in the future will be made available for use on the PRIME.  The job
control language (JCL) for retrieving data from WATSTORE and executing the
CONROUT program are documented in Appendix 4 of the subject report.  Any
questions pertaining to using the model can be directed to W. Harry Doyle, Jr.,
Gulf Coast Hydroscience Center, NSTL, Mississippi (FTS 494-1509).
