The prospect of practical continuous monitoring of open channel slope is nearing reality with modern monitoring technology. This study examines the use of continuous slope information in Manning’s equation for derivation of discharge at sites where unsteady flow hysteresis make stage-discharge curves unreliable. The results indicate that further research is needed to resolve problems arising from the assumption of a channel bed slope that is conceptually equal to the water surface slope.
