Consequently, in this report the use of the term “Southeast” refers specifically to Georgia, South Carolina, and North by: 4. This report provides methods for estimating flood characteristics at most natural flow sites on rural streams in Montana.

It also contains significant flood data and related information for many gaged sites on Montana streams. Frequency curves are provided for gaged sites as defined by log-Pearson Type III analysis. To allow estimates at ungaged sites, mathematical equations.

Large floods have historically caused extensive damage in Arizona. Although peak-flow frequency estimates are required for managing the risk posed by floods, estimates of the frequency of sustained flood flow (flood-duration flow) are also useful for planning and assessing the adequacy of retention and conveyance structures and for water-resource planning.

A technique is presented to provide a method of estimating the magnitude of peak discharges of T-year frequencies for unregulated, virtually natural streams in West Virginia.

Multiple regression techniques were used to develop the relation between peak discharges and drainage area. Data collected at stream gaging sites were used in the analyses. Estimation of the magnitude and frequency of past stream­ flow floods (paleofloods) has been based on bankfull-dis­ charge relations (1, 11), the size of boulders transported dur­ ing floods (9), or geologic evidence of maximum flood stages ().

Methods for estimating magnitude and frequency of floods in the southwestern United States. Estimates of the magnitude and frequency of flood-peak discharges and flood hydrographs are used for a variety of purposes, such as for the design of bridges, culverts, and flood-control structures; and for the management and regulation of flood plains.

To provide simple methods of estimating flood-peak discharges, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has developed and. Get this from a library. Methods for estimating magnitude and frequency of floods in the southwestern United States.

Methods for determining magnitude and frequency of floods in California, based on Author: Nancy A. Barth. The magnitude and frequency of floods from gaged and ungaged drainage areas in California, for any recurrence interval from 2 to years, can be estimated by use of the method presented.

Equations relating flood magnitudes of selected frequency to basin characteristics such as drainage area, precipitation, and altitude were developed for six regions in the State.
