Influence of Some Watershed Variables on a Major Flood
Abstract:Peak discharges and sediment deposition from watersheds during a major flood were found to be quantitatively related to forest cover density and other watershed characteristics. Forest fires as a principal cause of cover differences had an important effect in increasing peak discharges and erosion during a major flood. The independent effects of some watershed variables on peak discharges and sediment deposition were isolated in quantitative terms by means of multiple regression analysis.
