From all these 14 hydrometrical station it was select 9 of them to illustrate this study, with adequate response to the main point of paper (Tab.
In all the relationship between Cv an spatial factors, the position of all these 5 hydrometrical stations excluded in analysis is visible out of normal correlation.
The limitations of this research, in this stage, may refer to those hydrometrical stations having small variation of altitude (e.
