The authors claim lower errors (RMSE = 0.79 m3/s) for rating curve development than empirically calibrated rating curves (RMSE = 1.13 m3/s) when compared to streamflow measurements. Notwithstanding that the RMSE is a naïve estimator of the quality of a rating curve these results seem too good to be true. This is a case of an investigation where I will wait for validation by independent researchers replicating the method in a variety of stream types.
