Explanations
 left top: value of characteristic number for a single event.
 left bottom: mean value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.
 right top: maximum value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.
 right bottom: minimum value of the characteristic number within the period of data analysis.
Examples
mean flood current velocity

mean flood current velocity (maximum)



Remark: Magnitude corresponds to the mean value of all flood current velocity magnitudes. Direction gives mean flow direction during flood current. Mean flood current velocity is always larger or equal than residual flood current velocity.
