Bankfull flow recording times/periods/phases


Explanation:
La portata di piena non sembra indicare che il fiume trabocca le rive - 'bankfull' indicates the highest level the banks or levees can support.

As for time/period/phase I would have to see the phrase in context: I would use 'times' if there are specific times in which the level is recorded, 'periods' if the flow is recorded for a specific duration, and 'phases' if the recording process is composed of different steps.

In any case I think you'll find lots of useful terminology here:
