Design flood estimation for different durations

Design flood estimation is important for dam safety, landuse-planning and design of infrastructure. The objective of the task is to evaluate methods that can be used to estimate design floods for the instantaneous flood peak and durations up to ten days simultaneously.

This will be achieved by establishing a statistical model where the relationship between flood sizes, duration and exceedance probabilities is parameterized and applied to high-quality data series.
