Example figures: mean flood current velocity

From BAWiki

Explanations

  • left top: value of characteristic number for a single event.
  • left bottom: mean value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.
  • right top: maximum value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.
  • right bottom: minimum value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.

Examples

mean flood current velocity mean flood current velocity (maximum)
mean flood current velocity of one specific tide
maximum value of mean flood current velocity within the period of data analysis
mean flood current velocity (mean) mean flood current velocity (minimum)
mean value of mean flood current velocity within the period of data analysis
minimum value of mean flood current velocity within the period of data analysis


Remark: Magnitude corresponds to the mean value of all flood current velocity magnitudes. Direction gives mean flow direction during flood current. Mean flood current velocity is always larger or equal than residual flood current velocity.
