Title: SCS-CN method. Part II: Analytical treatment
Authors: Mishra, Surendra Kumar
Singh V.P.
Published in: Acta Geophysica Polonica
Abstract: This part of the paper, a sequel to Part I, in continuation of the analytical treatment of the Soil Conservation Service curve number (SCS-CN) method, further explores the SCS-CN method for: (a) its functional behaviour, (b) the physical interpretation of its proportional equality and curve number, (c) the derivation of seldom explored potential maximum retention S-CN relation, and (d) the development of CN-antecedent moisture condition (AMC) relations. Finally, an attempt is made to present the SCS-CN concept as a viable alternative to power law.
