In an investigation of 19 hurricanes of record since 1900, a method was developed for assigning frequencies to water levels of hypothetical hurricanes with various prescribed values of hurricane parameters - central pressure index, forward speed, and radius of maximum winds. A method is also presented for estimating surge frequency in inland bays and adjacent regions subject to flooding by hurricanes. Results are presented in tables and curves. Author
