Short summary
This paper presents new baseflow separation and recession analysis methods for streamflow. The baseflow separation method ("bump and rise method" or BRM) aims to accurately simulate the shape of tracer-determined baseflow or pre-event water. The recession analysis approach advocates analyzing quickflow and baseflow as well as streamflow because analyzing the latter alone gives misleading information on catchment storage reservoirs. The methods are demonstrated for the Glendhu streamflow record.
