Extreme Flow Statistics Statistiques sur les débits extrêmes

Data Format(s): MS Access Database

Abstract:
The dataset represents estimates for single-station annual flood and low-flow frequency in the Southwestern Hudson Bay and the Nelson River watershed systems, calculated for the Water Survey of Canada’s (WSC) database called HYDAT. The flood magnitude statistics can be used for applications such as flood plain delineation and design of hydraulic structures. The drought severity statistics can be used for applications such as water abstraction and effluent dilution.
