    This There is no national repository of maps of historical chapter addresses floodplain mapping associated with flood inundation that can be used to determine actual riverine flooding and flooding in ponded landscapes. Since each river is a different "hydrologic unit", we will use this as our search criteria. StreamStats is a World Wide Web application providing automated regression-equation solutions for user-selected sites on streams. Another assumption is that the occurrences and recurrence intervals of floods in the past is the same as the occurrences in the future.

    The relationship between the terrain slope using the U. Interagency Advisory Committee on Water Data. Go to this web site and do the following: On the upper right-hand side of the page are boxes that you can set to take you more directly to the information you want. However, this assumes a log-normal distribution of flood data when there are many possible distributions including log-normal, Gumbel, and Pearson distributions. The two-station comparison method uses data from a streamgage with long-term record to adjust the frequency characteristics at a streamgage with a short-term record.

    This will bring up the page for the Fargo gaging station. There are three main sources of uncertainty ping. In what year did the highest discharge occur, and what was the value of that discharge? Stage is the level of the water surface over a datum often sea level.

On the page that comes up, there is a box from which we can choose the hydrologic unit we are looking for. I have one stream channel narrow and steep sided and the other broad and relatively flat.

The search should then return results for all gaging stations on the Upper Red River. Because you took a course in natural disasters, you know that if you visit the web site of the U. This will bring up the page for the Fargo gaging station.

Determining the BFE involves first determin- lently the year BFE, does not vary with drainage ing the base flood discharge. In this case, find and select the unit called "Upper Red", then scroll down and click on the "Submit" button. Ideally, I would take students out to a stream a couple of times and have them measure discharge and stage so they get an idea of these measurements see Discharge and Sediment Transport in the Field for an example.

These confidence limits were computed using the 1. Here we need to specifically search for the Data we want. For example, rating curves may change with time and there is often significant scatter in the data, which can be used as a launching point for discussing regressions and error.

Crest or peak is the highest stage reached during a hydrologic event such as a flood. Another assumption is that the occurrences and recurrence intervals of floods in the past is the same as the occurrences in the future. The equations were developed using generalized least-squares regression.

Standard error of prediction Estimation of flood discharges at selected recurrence intervals for streams in New Hampshire book the one-variable equations ranges from about 34 to 45 percent and for the multi-variable equations ranges from about 31 to 42 percent.

That is usually not possible, so I lead an open ended discussion of how we can measure the discharge. The determination of recurrence intervals has many inherent assumptions that are often false.

This process is repeated for a year and mapping methods are well established. Flood discharges at selected recurrence intervals for selected streamgages were computed following the guidelines in Bulletin 17B of the U. A technique for adjusting a flood-discharge frequency curve computed from a streamgage record with results from the regression equations is described in this report.

Techniques for estimating flood-frequency discharges for streams in Iowa are presented for determining 1 regional regression estimates for ungaged sites on ungaged streams; 2 weighted estimates for gaged sites; and 3 weighted estimates for ungaged sites on gaged streams.

Teaching quantitative concepts in floods and flooding

For gauged watersheds, one can use the collected data and analyse them to get peak flood in the river. But, for un-gauged watersheds, one has. = Average time between flood events that equal or exceed a specified discharge. It is NOT the exact time between floods.
