Flood magnitude and frequency relations applicable to unregulated stream in Kentucky are based on flood data at gaging stations in Kentucky and 14.

Technique for estimating magnitude and frequency of floods in Kentucky. Springfield, Va.: National Technical Information Service, U.S.

Dept. of Commerce, [?] (OCoLC) Equations that relate flood magnitude and frequency to contributing drainage area in 16 geographic areas may be used to estimate magnitude of future floods with recurrence intervals of as much as years on gaged and ungaged streams having drainage areas of 10 to 4, square miles ( to 11, square kilometers).

Equations were developed for predicting the magnitude of floods with recurrence intervals of 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, and years in each of the six regions. These equations are applicable to unregulated rural streams with drainage basins ranging in area from square.

This report presents "a technique for estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods in the Houston, Texas, metropolitan area." It includes a map, graph, and by: 9. Abstract. A technique for estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods in the Houston, Texas, metropolitan area was developed by use of a multiple-regression flood-frequency analysis of flow data from unregulated streams in the area.

A regression model, relating flood-peak discharge to concurrent rainfall and antecedent soil moisture conditions, was used to simulate year records of. 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. A reliable estimate of the magnitude and frequency of floods is essential to the efficient design of bridges, cul­ verts, dams, and other hydraulic structures.

In more recent years, the need for flow-frequency estimates has greatly expand­ ed through implementation of the State Flood Plain Management program and the Federal Flood Insurance by: 9.

TECHNIQUE FOR ESTIMATING MAGNITUDE AND FREQUENCY OF FLOODS ON NATURAL-FLOW STREAMS IN FLORIDA By Wayne C. Bridges ABSTRACT A technique is provided for estimating floods on natural-flow streams in Florida for specific recurrence intervals of 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, and years.

Flood peaks from stream-gaging stations with long-terrrCited by: istics, and the results from a rainfall-runoff model to provide improved flood estimating techniques. Annual peak data from gaging stations (including crest-stage gages and 78 long-term gaging stations) with at least 10 years of record were included in an analysis to develop regional flood-frequency equations for by: Buy Techniques for Estimating Magnitude and Frequency of Floods in the Dallas - Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, Texas (Water - Resources Investigations, ) on FREE SHIPPING on qualified orders.
