- baseflow_stability(series, normalize=True)#
Baseflow stability after [heudorfer_2019].
- Return type
Originally developed for streamflow, here the Base Flow Index algorithm is analogously adapted to groundwater time series as a filter to separate the slow component (“baseflow”) of the time series. Then, the mean annual baseflow is calculated. Base Flow Stability is the difference of maximum and minimum annual baseflow.
