Transect.get_river_flow(q_name='q', Q_name='river_flow')[source]#

Integrate time series of depth averaged velocities [m2 s-1] into cross-section integrated flow [m3 s-1] estimating one or several quantiles over the time dimension. Depth average velocities must first have been estimated using get_q. A variable “Q” will be added to Dataset, with only “quantiles” as dimension.

  • q_name (str, optional) – name of variable where depth integrated velocities [m2 s-1] are stored (Default value = “q”)

  • Q_name (str, optional) – name of variable where resulting width integrated river flow estimates must be stored (Default value = “river_flow”)
