Flashiness of urban and desert streams in semi-arid Arizona watersheds (2003-2016)

Lauren McPhillips, Rebecca Hale, Stevan Earl & Nancy Grimm
The general consensus that urbanization results in dramatic changes in stream hydrology, such as higher peak flows and greater flashiness, has not been definitively tested for aridlands, which are themselves characterized by these very same hydrograph properties. This study analyzed streamflow records from 33 watersheds of central and southern Arizona, USA to determine how hydrograph characteristics varied across a range of development. Relationships of hydrologic parameters to urbanization were not evident when all catchments were...
