Floods represent a power and significant issue through the usa and lots of different elements of the area. they're liable for losses amounting to billions of bucks and rankings of deaths every year. almost all elements of the nation--coastal, moun­ tainous and rural--are laid low with them. points of the matter of flooding that experience lengthy been themes of medical inquiry are flood frequency and threat analyses. Many new, even superior, tech­ niques have lately been built for acting those analyses. however, genuine adventure issues out that the frequency of say a IOO-year flood, in lieu of being encountered at the typical as soon as in a single hundred years, should be as low as as soon as in 25 years. it really is hence applicable to pause and ask the place we're, the place we're going and the place we must be going in regards to the know-how of flood frequency and chance analyses. a technique to handle those ques­ tions is to supply a discussion board the place humans from all quarters of the area can gather, speak about and percentage their adventure and services bearing on flood frequency and probability analyses. this can be what con­ stituted the inducement for organizing the overseas Symposium on Flood Frequency and chance Analyses held may possibly 14-17, 1986, at Louisiana kingdom Universj. ty, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
