Paleoflood hydrology and design applications.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The use in China of historic flood records covering the last 2000 years is described. In the U.S.A., methods of using paleoflood data are not sufficiently well known. As an example of the usefulness of such methods, a project for the modification of a system of dams in Arizona is examined in the light of paleoflood data.
