Uniform flood frequency guidelines in the United States currently recommend fitting a Pearson (P3) distribution to the logarithms of annual maximum flood flows. As a result, a plethora of procedures have been recommended for obtaining unbiased plotting positions and unbiased estimates of the skew coefficient and for inverting the cumulative distribution function of a P3 variate. These developments are precisely the ingredients required for the construction of P3 probability plots. Using Monte… CONTINUE READING
