In the course of my duties as a hydrologist with a British regional water authority, I am frequently required to derive riverflow statistics for catchments for which there is little or no measured flow data. Whilst there are many existing methods by which flows may be estimated, my experience has been that the majority of these approaches are unreliable. This thesis describes the development of a suite of alternative, user orientated, high and low flow estimation techniques for application in ungauged catchments. As the derived methods require the cross reference between a large number of figures, these have grouped together as a separate volume, together with appendicies which include all analysed data. However, second copies of selected figures and all summary tables have been included within the main text as an aid to explanation.
