Abstract:

Several methods for estimating flood hydrographs and flood peaks of various frequencies are discussed. The methods include frequency analysis of historical streamflows, statistical equations, empirical formulas, single event watershed models, and continuous watershed models. Methods for computing modified frequency curves due to changing watershed conditions and water management activities are described. Author
