Site ID: 2353 Lat. -18.8663 Australia Northern Territory
River: Brunette Lake Long. 135.6236
Site name: Rockhampton Downs Contributing area: 81193 km2 Ratio to Comparison Station: 1.45
Latest measurement: 8-Jan-10 Mean annual runoff: 1632 mm (2003-2008)
Hydrologic status: 2 no data Total runoff this year (2010): 417 mm 2010
Latest M/C ratio: 1.79 Seven day total: 287 mm
Estimated current discharge: 58351 m3/sec Percent of mean 7-day total: 793.3 % (today's value compared to mean for same period, 2003-2007)
Ice-cover determination: 5 yr recurrence flood: 32661 m3/sec (from Log Pearson III analysis)
Status Codes:  1 = Low flow, 2 = Normal flow, 3 = Flood, 4 = Major Flood 41493 m3/sec (from Gumbel Extreme Value analysis)
Comparison Station Information:  Victoria Highway (5708126)         Contributing Area:   sq mi 55926 sq km
(Data from this gaging station are used for the calibration to discharge, with an adjustment for different contributing areas)
Notes: Signal records lake level changes, not discharge. Discharge, flood status, and runoff values are not, therefore, valid. Status set permanently at 2
Discharge and runoff, based on satellite remote sensing (NASA AMSR-E data)
(For U.S, sites, nearby ground station discharge may also be shown)

Discharge is estimated via a rating equation directly from the remote sensing data (M/C ratio) shown below.
Explanation:   Green line records upwelling microwave emission from a land parcel (ca 10 km x 10 km) near the river; blue line from a parcel centered over the river.
Brown line is their ratio (M/C; scale on right) and is used to estimate river discharge via a rating equation.
Rating equations are being developed and applied on an individual basis. For calibration status, see "notes" entry, above.
