      A flood is usually caused by a stream that has overflowed its banks during periods of high runoff. Floods occur when the water height or stage of a stream, commonly measured by a stream guage, passes some predetermined level, which is usually taken as the bank-full stage.

Snythetic records generated by a digital computer Model of the rainfall-runoff process for drainage areas ranging from to square miles ( to square kilometres) were combined with long-term observed records to define the relation of basic characteristics to flood frequency on drainage areas as great as 6, square miles (17, square kilometres).

Improved flood-frequency information is important for the effective management of flood plains, including the safe and economic design of bridges, culverts, dams, levees, and other structures near streams.

The last flood-frequency study for Mississippi was published more than 25 years ago (Landers and Wilson, ). Since that time, improvements inAuthor: Brandon T. Anderson. To improve flood-frequency estimates at rural streams in Mississippi, annual exceedance probability flows at gaged streams and regional regression equations used to estimate annual exceedance probability flows for ungaged streams were developed by using current geospatial data, new analytical methods, and annual peak-flow data through the water : Brandon T.

Anderson. Three of these regions are defined by geographic boundaries and one by drainage area magnitude (streams outside the Mississippi River Delta having drainage areas greater than square miles).

The regression equations developed for these subgroups are for estimating peak discharges (QT) having recurrence intervals T that range from 2 to years. frequency of floods on streams located in the alluvial plain of the lower Mississippi River. Flood records from 30 representative stream sites, 6 in Mississippi, 11 in Arkansas, and 13 in Louisiana, were analyzed in a log-Pearson Type III distribution to determine the pro­ bable flood frequency relation at each site.

These relations wereCited by: 2. FLOOD-FREQUENCY REGION BOUNDARY OF FLOOD- FREQUENCY REGION A GAGING STATION AND MAP NUMBER 34° 33° 32° 31° '{ \A~A.' I V *>.,\A8H -//A ^ A^3 >1 21 A Figure 1.

Location of streamflow-gaging stations and flood-frequency by: Flooding and Flood Frequency. Streams flood. Flooding is a normal part of stream behavior. The rate at which streams erode, transport, and deposit sediments greatly increases during flooding.

A flood occurs when the water depth in a stream exceeds the depth of the stream channel and spreads beyond the stream channel onto the surrounding land.

A study of peak discharges for 54 stream gauge sites in the Cumberland, Tennessee and Mississippi watersheds of Kentucky is presented. Primary interest is on the more frequent flood events, those events associated with return periods less than 5 years. The flood was the greatest flood in modern history on the lower Mississippi River.

In the summer of until the spring ofheavy rains fell in eastern Kansas, Oklahoma, and the Ohio White and Little Red rivers broke through the levees in Arkansas in February, flooding over km 2 (99, acres) with 3 to 5 m ( to ft) of water.

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.

Is the relationship between stream stage and stream discharge direct (i.e., as one parameter increases, so does the other) or inverse (i.e., as one parameter increases, the other parameter decreases).

Before that, records of past Mississippi flood events were based on written records, and those weren’t adequate to construct a record years long, Muñoz said.

A stream bed or streambed is the channel bottom of a stream or river, the physical confine of the normal water lateral confines or channel margins are known as the stream banks or river banks, during all but flood certain conditions a river can branch from one stream bed to multiple stream beds.

A flood occurs when a stream overflows its banks and flows onto its flood plain.
