Description: Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ, UK. Research on regionalisation in hydrology has been constantly advancing due to the need for prediction of streamflow in ungauged catchments. There are two types of studies that use regionalisation techniques for ungauged catchments. One type estimates parameters of streamflow statistics, flood quantiles in most cases. The other type estimates parameters of a rainfall-runoff model for simulating continuous streamflow or estimates continuous streamflow without using a model. Almost all methods applied to the latter can be applied to the former. This paper reviews all methods that are applied to continuous streamflow estimation for ungauged catchments. We divide them into two general categories: (1) distance-based and (2) regression-based. Methods that fall within each category are reviewed first and followed with a discussion on merits or problems associated with these various methods.
