Abstract

This paper compares a model and an empirical calculation for calculating flood probabilities and associated peak discharges for the upper Guadalupe watershed. Assuming an increase from tributaries into Canyon Lake, the estimate of peak discharge obtained from USGS data much more closely matches the recorded flow than the results from the National Flood Frequency program
