Summary

To improve flood-frequency estimates at rural streams in Mississippi, annual exceedance probability flows at gaged streams in Mississippi and regional-regression equations, used to estimate annual exceedance probability (AEP) flows for ungaged streams in Mississippi, were developed by using current geospatial data, additional statistical methods, and annual peak-flow data through the 2013 water year. The regional-regression equations were derived from statistical analyses of peak-flow data, basin characteristics associated with 281 streamgages, the generalized skew from Bulletin 17B (Interagency Advisory Committee on Water Data, 1982), and a newly developed study-specific skew for select four-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC4) watersheds [...]
