Abstract
A new methodology for calculating flood frequency relationships is presented. Input data requirements are the normal watershed parameters of length, slope and area plus the point rainfall intensity-duration-frequency curve for the specified geographic location. Initial testing on 60 Kansas basins ranging in size from less than one square mile to more than 1,000 square miles gave results which compared favorably with other available techniques. The methodology provides for the determination of a frequency-equivalent storm having a uniform rainfall excess intensity. (Modified author abstract)
