In this study, in order to determe low flow conditions in Karkhe watershed, 5 indices of Q7,10, Q7,20, Q30,10, Q4,3 and Q95 were used for analyzing 12 hydrometric station data in the years of 1345-46 to 1380-81. Discharge data homogeneity was performed by Run Test. The Q95 index was determined by flow duration curve (FDC) and other indices were determined using 4, 7 and 30-day low flow frequency analysis. After calculating the indices, periods of low flows were determined. The indices were regionalized by Kriging method. The results showed that for the most stations, low stream flows happened in the years of 1345-46, 1377-78, 1378-79, 1379-80 and 1380-81 and the percentages of stations having low flows in these years were 68, 92, 84, 75 and 59, respectively. According to the regional maps of low flows in Karkhe watershed, maximum low flows are located in central and southern areas and all of the mentioned indices decrease from south to the north of this watershed.
