Abstract If the standardised floods at all sites within a given region are assumed to be samples from the same distribution, all data may be combined to yield an estimate of a regional dimensionless flood frequency relationship. The identification of these hydrologically homogeneous regions can be achieved on the basis of the physical characteristics of the basin which control the hydrological processes. Classification of the basins independent of the discharge data avoids the problems of… CONTINUE READING
