Description The primary objective of this study was to develop probabilistic information about the characteristics of extreme storms for use in the computer modeling of extreme floods. Specifically, information was needed for the construction of synthetic storm hyetographs which have the statistical properties of observed extreme storms.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
