- baseflow_index(series, normalize=True)#
Baseflow index according to [wmo_2008].
- Return type
Adapted analogously to its application in streamflow. Here, a baseflow time series is separated from a 5‐day minimum groundwater head in a moving window. BFI equals the total sum of heads of original time series divided by the total sum of heads from the baseflow type of time series.
