Abstract

The paper presents a review of the literature that deals with the paleoflood discharge and frequency estimates which are extended over 10,000 years by the study of slack-water flood sediments. Morphostratigraphic approach that combines recorded data with geomorphic evidence to derive estimates of flood frequency is discussed. This technique offers an inexpensive and rapid way to assess catastrophic flood risk.
