INTERIM REPORT NO 7: FREQUENCY OF PEAK FLOWS PREDICTED FROM RAINFALL FREQUENCIES

A PRELIMINARY STUDY BASED MAINLY ON GUMBEL'S FIRST ASYMPTOTIC EXTREME VALUE DISTRIBUTION FOR RAINFALL INTENSITIES AND PEAK DISCHARGE RATES WAS MADE TO CORRELATE THE FREQUENCIES OF PEAK FLOWS AND RAINFALL. A PREDICTION EQUATION FOR ESTIMATING THE PEAK TOTAL DISCHARGE WAS SUGGESTED. THIS METHOD WAS TESTED ON MONTANA WATERSHEDS EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE. /AUTHOR/
