Seasonal Occurrence of Maximum Annual Flows in the Danube River Basin in Croatia

Josip Petraš, Darko Barbalić

Abstract

The analysis of seasonal occurrence of maximum annual flows, conducted at 95 gauging stations within the Danube river basin, is presented. Burn’s vector method, and RVA - Range of Variability Approach method based on elementary statistical analysis of maximum annual flow dates, are used. The analysis shows that the lowest seasonal variability of maximum flows occurs in Gorski Kotar drainage basins, and that this maximum statistically occurs near the end of the year. The seasonal variability of maximum annual flows is much higher for other gauging stations included in the analysis.
