Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Coastal Community of Practice frequently studies past hydrology and assumptions about future hydrology to characterize potential future flood events and associated risks. USACE may be able to use information about floods from the very distant past to help characterize floods that have low probabilities of occurrence. This report briefly describes the collection of paleoflood information and various ways to translate that information into hydrologic frequency estimates for flood stage, discharge, and volumes. It addresses appropriate use of the paleoflood information for USACE hydrology and hydraulics applications.
