predominately pool-riffle character. The results seem fairly
reasonable. The reach with the most c han ne I -con t r o I character
should probably be the Forest Grove to LaVista; the fact that A
exceeds 1.0 and B is negative for this reach indicates that the
river may flow abnormally fast through this stretch.
The reach
With the most pool-riffle character would certainly be Petty Or
to Forest Grove, which includes Alberton Gorge.

The values for A and B were rounded off to the common fractions
which are shown in the "Used" columns. The determination of
travel-times at other flows was done by the following procedure

1. divide the river from below Milltown to above Thompson
Falls into reaches;

2. determine the flow at USGS gauge below Missoula;

3. estimate the flow for the other reaches;

4. calculate V and V for each reach followed by

estimates of V using Tne equations given above;
m

5. using the estimates of V calculate the travel time for
each reach and keep a cumulative total.

For the synoptic sampling runs the "Hour" column in the above
table was used to determine when to sample at each station,
"window" of + or - 5% of the cumulative hour was allowed,
example, at 3000 cfs the sampling schedule allowed for the
station at Superior to be sampled anytime from 38.1 to 42.1
hours after the start of the sampling run below Milltown.
Although an attempt was being made to track a slug of water,
actuality the slug disperses greatly as it moves downstream
This was noted in the dye-study and justifies the + or - 5%
w i n dow .
