The National Dam Safety Program Research Needs Workshop: Hydrologic Issues for Dams

Cover photo for the document: The National Dam Safety Program Research Needs Workshop: Hydrologic Issues for Dams
This workshop report documents expert findings in three areas: risk analysis, standards, and meteorological needs. Risk analysis focuses on items relating to uncertainty factors that influence reservoir inflow values and the computation of the Annual Exceedance Probability (AEP) of extreme floods. Standards issues include physical factors that influence the methodology for the computation of extreme floods, including the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF). Meteorological needs focus on rainfall analysis from both the standards base analysis and a risk-based analysis, including precipitation analysis, rainfall frequency analysis, and real-time storm analysis.
