Description

This aim of this subject is to provide students with an understanding of flood estimation techniques from both theoretical and practical perspectives. More specifically students investigate issues related to flood risk, determination of the risk, and estimation of the flood flow using both statistical and deterministic techniques. Topics include: the flood prediction problem; types of point flood flow estimation techniques, including at-site flood frequency analysis, regional flood estimation techniques, and estimation using simulation; types of system flood flow estimation; statistical techniques for flood flow estimation; regional approaches; and simulation techniques.
