      characteristics to the magnitude and frequency of floods for stream sites in Iowa and provides a flood-estimation method that is independent of hydrologic regionalization. Measurements of channel-geometry characteristics have been used to estimate the magnitude and frequency of floods in investigations conducted by Fields (). This report provides techniques and procedures for estimating the probable magnitude and frequency of floods at ungaged sites on Iowa streams. Physiographic characteristics were used to define the boundaries of five hydrologic regions. Regional regression equations that relate the size of the drainage area to flood magnitude are defined for estimating peak discharges having specified.

      Estimates of flood characteristics with recurrence intervals up to years can be obtained at most sites in Nebraska by use of techniques presented in this report. Instructions, equations, and graphs are presented to aid the design engineer in estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods. For natural-flow streams, the estimating equations and graphical solutions are based on regional.

While the detection of changes in flood characteristics is essential, it is also of critical importance to start exploring what caused these changes.

Floods were profiled for June flood events for 18 different years, followed by July flood events for 13 years, May flood events for 11 years, and April flood events for 9 years.

Multiple large flood events exceeding the 2-percent annual exceedance-probability discharge estimate occurred at 37 of 98 selected streamgages during A large portion of the U.S. population, infrastructure, and industry is at risk of flooding. Floods have caused more damage annually in the United States than any other natural disaster.

Flood-frequency analysis provides information about the magnitude and frequency of flood discharges based upon records of annual maximum instantaneous peak discharges collected at streamgages.

These estimates are needed to implement efficient flood-plain management strategies and for. A study published in Nature Climate Change, “The Changing Nature of Flooding across the Central United States,” examines long-term trends in the frequency and intensity of flood events.
