Techniques for Estimating the Magnitude and Frequency of Peak Flows on Small Streams in Minnesota Based on Data through Water Year USGS Scientific Investigations Report [Lorenz, David L., Sanocki, Chris A., et al.] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Techniques for Estimating the Magnitude and Frequency of Peak Flows on Small Streams in Minnesota Based on Author: Chris A. Sanocki. Knowledge of the peak flow of floods of a given recurrence interval is essential for regulation and planning of water resources and for design of bridges, culverts, and dams along Minnesota's rivers and streams. Statistical techniques are needed to estimate peak flow at ungaged sites because long-term streamflow records are available at relatively few places. Improved Methods of Parameterization for Estimating the Magnitude and Frequency of Peak Discharges in Rural Ungaged Streams Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Hydrologic Engineering 21(1. The design of bridges and culverts crossing rivers, streams, and gullies requires knowledge of the possible peak flows to be conveyed through the respective channels. Often these structures are designed based on recurrence flood year discharges (typically the percent 1-chance ( year) streamflow).Cited by: 2.

Estimates of the magnitude and frequency of peak streamflows is critical for the safe and cost-effective design of hydraulic structures and stream crossings, and accurate delineation of flood plains. Engineers, planners, resource managers, and scientists need accurate estimates of peak-flow return frequencies for locations on streams with and without streamflow-gaging stations.

StreamStats Application. StreamStats is a Web application that provides access to an assortment of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analytical tools that are useful for water-resources planning and management, and for engineering and design purposes. The map-based user interface can be used to delineate drainage areas for user-selected sites on streams, and then get basin characteristics.

  The term "year flood" is used to describe the recurrence interval of floods. The year recurrence interval means that a flood of that magnitude has a one percent chance of occurring in any given year. In other words, the chances that a river will flow as high as the year flood stage this year is 1 in Statistically, each year. ESTIMATING THE MAGNITUDE AND FREQUENCY OF FLOODS ON NATURAL-FLOW STREAMS IN MASSACHUSETTS. The magnitude and frequency of floods on natural-flow streams in Massachusetts, with drainage areas between square miles ( sq km) and square miles (1, sq km), may be estimated from drainage area, main channel slope, a precipitation index, and a storage factor.
