TECHNIQUES FOR ESTIMATING FLOOD-DEPTH FREQUENCY RELATIONS ON NATURAL STREAMS IN GEORGIA By McGlone Price ABSTRACT Regional relations are defined for estimating the depth of floods having recurrence intervals of 10, 50, and years on streams with natural flow in Georgia.

Flood-frequency characteristics are defined for gaging stations in Tennessee and adjoining states having 10 or more years of record not significantly affected by man-made changes.

The flood-hydrograph and flood-volume techniques are useful for estimating a typical (average) flood. hydrograph and volume for any specified recur- rence interval peak discharge at any. ungaged stream site draining areas less than square miles in central Tennessee.

INTRODUCTION. File Size: 1MB. Tennessee is divided into four hydrologic areas (fig. The regression equations developed for these areas are for estimating peak discharges (QT) having recurrence intervals T that range from 2 to years. Drainage area (A), in square miles, the only explanatory basin variable, can be measured from topographic maps.

Flood Depth and Analysis Grids February Guidance Document 14 Page 2 used and the appropriate precision that can be supported by the data. Normally, all the raster datasets should use the same raster cell size. However, it is strongly recommended that the cell size for the WSEL grids be no larger than 10eet x 10 feet.

This article throws light upon the top six methods for estimation of flood discharge. The methods are: 1. Catchment-Run-Off Method 2. Empirical Formulae 3. Rational Method 4. Cross Sectional Area and Bed Slope 5. Area of Cross-Section and Velocity As Observed At Bridge Site 6. Available Records.

The Flood Studies Report provided a choice of means (Fig. ) of estimating the flood hydrograph of any return period, or the estimated maximum flood, from an estimate of the storm depth and its time profile and its conversion to river flow.

FIGURE Water surface elevations on the floodplain adjacent to a river may be inferred from the elevation at a cross section of the river using a floodplain–channel water surface elevation function.

(a) A cross section of the river and adjacent floodplain. In (b), the floodplain depth is zero until the capacity of the channel is exceeded and water moves onto the floodplain. Techniques are developed for estimating year flood depths in natural channels of unregulated Pennsylvania streams that drain less than 2, square miles.

Equations and graphs are presented relating the depth of the year flood above median stage and drainage area in five defined hydrologic areas in the State. Another graph defines the relation between drainage area and median depth of. Bank Stabilization Design Guidelines.

This report supersedes previous reports by Prior (), Prior and Hess (), Wiitala (), Patterson and Gamble (), and Guetzkow (); all of which dealt with techniques for estimating flood magnitudes in by: 7.

Technique for estimating the 2- to year flood discharges on unregulated streams in rural Missouri. A generalized least-squares regression technique was used to relate the 2- to year flood discharges from selected streamflow-gaging stations to statistically significant basin characteristics.

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 mile to about 5, square miles in some regions.

A powerful new tool for flood response and mitigation are digital geospatial flood-inundation maps that show flood water extent and depth on the land surface. Because floods are the leading cause of natural-disaster losses, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is actively involved in the development of flood inundation mapping across the Nation.

Flood magnitude and frequency relations applicable to unregulated stream in Kentucky are based on flood data at gaging stations in Kentucky and 14 in adjacent states having 10 or more years of record. Equations that related 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.

A generalised technique for the estimation of probable maximum precipitation in India. Hydrol., In this paper a version of a generalised method of estimating probable maximum precipitation (PMP) is applied to the catchments of four large dams in India.

The value of a secure dam is high both in terms of human life and in Cited by: The flood of is the most significant flood ever recorded in east Tennessee. The Upper Tennessee Valley was especially susceptible to flooding thanks to its location between the Smoky Mountains to the east and the Cumberland Plateau to the west.

TECHNIQUE FOR ESTIMATING THE MAGNITUDE AND FREQUENCY OF FLOODS IN TEXAS. Drainage area, slope, and mean annual precipitation were the only factors that were statistically significiant at the percent confidence level when the characteristics of the drainage basins were used as independent variables in a multiple-regression flood-frequency analysis of natural, unregulated.

Due to unavailability of sufficient discharge data for many rivers, hydrologists have used indirect methods for deriving flood discharge amount, that is, application of channel geometry and hydrological models, for the estimation of peak discharge in the selected ungauged river basin(s) in their research/project works.

This paper has studied the estimation of peak flood discharge of the Kunur Cited by:   The amount of water corresponding to a year flood, a year flood, or a 1,year flood is known as a "flood quantile".

For instance, on a given river, the flood quantile corresponding to the year flood might be 10, cubic feet per second (cfs) and the flood quantile corresponding to the year flood might be 15, cfs. The. Techniques for estimating flood-depth frequency relations for streams in West Virginia.
