Abstract

Regression analysis of flood-depth frequency and drainage area data for 46 streams on Maryland 's Western Shore produced equations and curves which may be used to estimate depths of floods with exceedance probabilities of 50, 20, 10, 2, and 1 percent. A procedure is outlined to allow the reader to convert the estimated flood depths to an elevation above the streambed. (Woodard-USGS)
