  • Hydrologists have traditionally assumed that the annual maximum flood process at a location is independent and identically distributed. While nonstationarities in the flood process due to land use changes have long been recognized, it is only recently becoming clear that structured interannual, interdecadal, and longer time variations in planetary climate impart the temporal structure to the flood frequency process at flood control system design and operation timescales. The influence of… CONTINUE READING
