Calculation of the mean flow may often be as simple as the mathematical mean: simply add up the given flow rates and then divide the final figure by the number of initial readings.
For example, given two discharges (Q) of 3 m³/s and 5 m³/s, we can use these flow rates Q to calculate the mean flow rate Qmean. Which in this case is Qmean = 4 m³/s.
