Records poor. Streamflow at this site is significantly
affected by astronomical tides. Daily mean discharges were computed
from filtered unit value discharge data. The Godin low-pass filter is
used to remove principal tidal frequencies from unit values. Positive
discharge (ebb tide) is generally to the south direction, and negative
discharge (flood tide) is generally to the north.
