Geomorphic events of large magnitude are rare and their occurrence affords a special opportunity to better understand a system in an extreme state. There is still debate concerning the relative importance of event magnitude and frequency on environmental change (Magilligan et al. 1998). Therefore, the environmental impact of floods, especially large floods, with respect to contaminants such as herbicides, pesticides, nutrients, and heavy metals are poorly understood (Tobin et al. 2000).
