ABSTRACT
This paper aims to evaluate the influence of hydrological similarity measures on the definition of homogeneous regions. To this end, several attribute sets have been analyzed in the context of the Region of Influence (ROI) procedure. Several combinations of geomorphological, climatological, and geographical characteristics are also used to cluster potentially homogeneous regions. To verify the goodness of the resulting pooled sites, homogeneity tests are carried out. Through a Monte Carlo simulation and a jack-knife procedure, flow quantiles are estimated for the regions effectively resulting as homogeneous. The analysis are performed in both the so-called gauged and ungauged scenarios to analyze the effect of hydrological measures on flow quantiles estimation.
