 abstract = {Bankfull hydraulic 
geometry relationships, also called regional curves, relate bankfull stream 
channel dimensions and discharge to watershed drainage area. This paper 
describes results of bankfull curve relationships developed for the temperate 
rainforests of the Southern Appalachian Mountains primarily on Western 
North Carolina Mountain streams in the Southeastern United States. Gauge 
stations for small and larger catchments were selected with a range of 10 to 
50 years of continuous or peak discharge measurements, no major 
impoundments, no significant change in land use over the past 10 years, and 
impervious cover ranges of <20%. Cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys 
were measured at each study reach to determine channel dimension, 
pattern, and profile information. Log-Pearson Type III distributions were 
used to analyze annual peak discharge data for nine small watersheds sites 
gauged by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Forest 
Service, Southern Research Station, Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory and for 
eleven larger watersheds gauged by the United States Geological Survey 
(USGS). Power function relationships were developed using regression 
analyses for bankfull discharge, channel cross-sectional area, mean depth, 
and width as functions of watershed drainage area.},
