We study the spatial random field of peak flows indexed by a channel network. Invariance of the probability distributions of peak flows under translation on this indexing set defines statistical homogeneity in a network. It implies that floods can be indexed by the network magnitude, or equivalently the drainage area, which serves as a scale parameter. This definition generalizes to homogeneity of flows in a geographical region containing several networks which are not necessarily the… CONTINUE READING
