Abstract:

The application of statistics in hydrologic engineering is described and illustrated. The subject matter covers the following items 1 A concise review of the basic concepts of probability and correlation analyses that are applicable in hydrologic engineering, with a guide to supplemental reading for further treatment 2 Presentation of detailed computation procedures and supporting justifications and computation aids for derivation of probability of frequency estimates based on analysis of hydrologic records that have been adjusted as required to conform with selected reference base conditions and 3 A summary of procedures for developing regionalized hydrologic frequency estimates, based on analyses of hydrologic records available at stream gaging stations, adjusted to provide generalized flood-frequency relations that are considered most representative of long-period hydrologic characteristics in various drainage areas in the region. Also, illustrations and explanations of simple generalization procedures for use where these are adequate and advantageous are given.
