Flood frequency analysis is the means by which flood discharge magnitude (Q) is related to the probability of its being equaled or exceeded in any year or to its frequency of recurrence or return period (T).The return period and recurrence interval (terms which are used interchangeably) are used to indicate the long-term average interval between floods of a given magnitude. Data analysis is an integral part of hydrology. Hydrologists frequently use techniques, such as regression analysis, which are incorporated into conventional statistical packages and spreadsheet software. However, many hydrological analyses are not, including intensity-duration-frequency analysis and flood frequency analysis.

Flood Frequency Analysis. A. Ramachandra Rao, Khaled H. Hamed. Format Book Published Boca Raton ; London: CRC Press, c Language English Series New Directions in Civil Engineering ISBN Description xvii, p.: ill., maps ; 25 cm. Notes Includes bibliographical references and . flood-frequency analysis Flood-frequency analysis provides information about the magnitude and frequency of selected flood discharges. Frequency commonly is expressed in terms of exceedance probability (a dimensionless number ranging from 0 to ) or as a recurrence interval (the reciprocal of exceedance probability) in years (table 1).

This course enables the participant to make technically sound and efficient discharge-frequency estimates. The course focuses on the theoretical basis for frequency analysis, application of techniques contained in the "Guidelines for Determining Flood Flow Frequency," Bulletin 17B, and application of the computer program HEC-SSP.

Flood Frequency Analysis book Flood Frequency Analysis fills this gap by presenting many of these distributions and estimation procedures in a unified format within a single, self-contained book. Focusing on distribution families popular within the hydrologic community, the authors discuss three parameter estimation methods for each distribution: the method of moments, the 5/5(1).

The objective of this step is to make the students familiar with the concept of flood frequency analysis. This step assumes that the user already has information on the peak streamflow data for a USGS gauge station. This section presents a brief overview on the terminology used by hydrologists during flood frequency analysis.

Gumbel distribution Gumbel distribution is a statistical method often used for predicting extreme hydrological events such as floods (Zelenhasic, ; Haan, ; Shaw, ). In this study it has been applied for flood frequency analysis because (a) peak flow data are homogeneous and independent hence lack long-term trends; (b) the river is lessFile Size: 85KB.

Hamed. The index-flood (IF) method, developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (Dalrymple, ; Benson, ), is widely used to perform regional flood-frequency analysis. The basic premise of this method is that a combination of streamflow records maintained at a number of gaging stations will produce a more reliable, not a longer, record, and thus.

Flood Frequency Analysis is the statistical calculation of the probability of occurrence of flood of specific magnitude in a river, the specific period is called return period and the flow can be ranked as maximum possible flow.
