Abstract

Central Texas is subject to flooding of extraordinary magnitude, particularly in the frequency range of 10-50 years. Assuming that stream network geometry has been adjusted to these floods, quantitative drainage network analysis can be used to relate stream morphology to potential flood discharge. Stream network geometries were digitized from Skylab S-190B imagery, high-altitude and low-altitude aerial photographs, and large scale topographic maps. The digitzed data were then used to generate significant hydrogeomorphic parameters with the W. A. T. E. R. System, a computer program for watershed analysis. Refs.
