Direct runoff includes baseflow. FALSE d. The convex routing method computes the downstream flow this period as a function of the upstream flows for this period and last period. FALSE e. The Rational Method for estimating detention pond storage assumes the design storm hydrograph is triangular with the flow beginning at time zero, the peak occurring at a time equal to the time of concentration, and the flow ending at a time equal to twice the time of concentration. TRUE f. The Loss-of-Natural-Storage method, using the Rational method to determine runoff depths, is the best of the methods to estimate the volume of detention storage volume. FALSE g.
