In the map below, the hurricane’s impact on precipitation and streamflow are shown. Normalized discharge (cubic feet per second) at US Geological Survey gaging stations within ~150 km of the eye of the hurricane is shown in the right panel. Variation in the shape of the hydrographs (right panel) is due to stream size, storm-surge, reservoir closures, and other local conditions, which can impact the effect of precipitation on flow.

Ecoclimax is defined by Odum (1969) as the culmination state after a succession in a stabilized ecosystem in which maximum biomass (or high information content) and symbiotic function among organisms is kept per unit of available energy flow.
