Page 8 - Second-feet per square mile" is the average number of cubic feet of water flowing per second from each square mile of area drained, on the assumption that the run-off is distributed uniformly both as regards time and area. "Run-off...
Page 9 - Acre-foot (ac-ft) is the quantity of water required to cover an acre to the depth of 1 foot and is equivalent to 43,560 cubic feet.
Page 8 - The volume of water flowing in a stream — the "run-off" or "discharge" — is expressed in various terms, each of which has become associated with a certain class of work. These terms may be divided into two groups: (1) Those which represent a rate of flow, as secondfeet, gallons per minute, miner's inches, and...
Page 10 - ... feet. 1 acre equals 0.4047 hectare. 1 acre equals 43,560 square feet. 1 acre equals 209 feet square, nearly. 1 square mile equals 2.59 square kilometers. 1 cubic foot equals 0.0283 cubic meter. 1 cubic foot equals 7.48 gallons.
Page 8 - The volume of water flowing in a stream — the "run-off "-or "disharge" — is expressed in various terms, each of which has become associated with a certain class of work. These terms may be divided into two groups: (1) Those which represent a rate of flow, as secondfeet, gallons per minute, miner's inches, and discharge in second-feet per square mile; and (2) those which represent the actual quantity of water, as run-off in depth in inches and acre-feet.
Page 9 - CONVENIENT EQUIVALENTS The following is a list of convenient equivalents for use in hydraulic computations: Table for converting discharge In second-feet per square mile into run-off in depth in inches over the area.
Page 3 - Surface Water Supply of Canada. Arctic and Western Hudson Bay Drainage and Mississippi Drainage in Canada in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Northwest Territories and Western Ontario.
Page 136 - Maximum. Minimum. Mean. Per square mile. Depth in inches on drainage area. Total in acre-feet.
Page 10 - Arizona miner's inches. 1 second-foot equals 7.48 United States gallons per second; equals 448.8 gallons per minute; equals 646,317 gallons for one day. 1 second-foot for one year covers 1 square mile 1.131 feet, or 13.572 inches deep. 1 second-foot for one year equals 31,536,000 cubic feet. 1 second-foot equals about 1 acre-inch per hour.
Page 11 - In the table of monthly discharge the column headed "Maximum" gives the mean flow for the day when the mean gage height was highest. As the gage height is the mean for the day it does not indicate correctly the stage when the water surface was at crest height and the corresponding discharge was consequently larger than given in the maximum column.
