The increase of k conditions the increase of the probability that this certain interval includes the part of one or several floods. The flood component of Qmin depends on k and the height, volume and duration of flood peaks. m,,) = E(Qrnin) - E(q o) =qqJ[k,m(v)] (11) 32 Equation (11) is an approximation arrived at with the help of a simulation experiment.

Introduction The spatial structure of long-term fluctuations of river runoff has been studied for a long time in connection with research on the genesis of these fluctuations and attempts to establish their global and large-scale laws. One of the directions of this research is the identification of areas with synchronous and asynchronous fluctuations of annual runoff.
However, for some rivers the function 'Prit) linearly growing in the interval lt I , tk 1 was used. In this it case depends on the flood component of the runoff volume for the whole period. Number k is a characteristic of this volume and correlation between qo and k reflects this dependence. 46, and for the River Lornnitsa (Ukrainian Carpathians) corrtqs. 47.
