The problem of forecasting the flow (floods and flow volumes) is approached from two vantage points: (a) use of basic stochastic hypotheses about thunderstorm patterns in space and time coupled to a simple rainfall-runoff model for a small basin so as to obtain a theoretical probability distribution of flow volumes, (b) use of a simple linear regression model relating flood peak to concurrent rainfall in the Tucson area as a basis for a Bayesian decision theoretic study of the worth of secondary data sources (rainfall) to augment information in the primary data (flood peak).
