PART: A computerized method of base-flow-record estimation
This web site includes information about the use of the PART computer program for analyzing a streamflow record. The version at this site will read streamflow data in the format that is available from USGS web sites.
The computer program PART uses streamflow partitioning to estimate a daily record of groundwater discharge under the streamflow record. The method designates groundwater discharge to be equal to streamflow on days that fit a requirement of antecedent recession, linearly interpolates groundwater discharge for other days, and is applied to a long period of record to obtain an estimate of the mean rate of groundwater discharge.
