USSD 2020 Fall Workshop Series
Regional Analysis Tools for Calculating the Magnitude of Extreme Floods
Three, 3 - hour Webinars (9 hours total)
Dec. 9-11, 2020
9:00 am - 12:00 pm MST
Eligible for 9 PDHs
Government funded projects that analyze rainfall and streamflow data across an entire state can improve the defensibility and reduce the cost of flood analysis studies for individual reservoirs by improving the baseline information for calculating extreme flood events. Three separate regional analysis techniques discussed in this workshop include Regional Flood Frequency Analysis (RFFA), Regional Precipitation Frequency Analysis (RPFA), and Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) analysis. Historical information collected by non-standard scientific measurement methods are also incorporated into the analysis. Novel methods of completing the analysis are presented using the results of studies completed in western US and Canada.
The objective of the workshop is to provide attendees with an understanding of the methodologies and benefits of completing state-wide regional analysis utilizing different forms of data and information with the end goal of producing defensible extreme flood studies.
Engineers, geologists, hydrologists, hydrometeorologists, dam owners, government professionals and managers. The workshop should interest junior, mid, and senior level professionals.
