SURFACE WATER BRANCH TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM NO. 79.01

Subject:  PUBLICATIONS - Reports:  "A rainfall-runoff modeling procedure
                         for improving estimates of T-year (annual) floods
                         for small drainage basins" by R. W. Lichty and
                         F. Liscum


The enclosed report provides some maps and relations that might be used
to improve flood-frequency estimates derived either from observed flood
records or from synthetic flood records generated by a rainfall-runoff
model.  The maps and relations are based upon analyses of flood data
observed at 99 small-stream sites and long-term precipitation data re-
corded at 36 sites.  A great deal of these data were obtained and/or
processed by WRD field offices.

The report should be of interest and use to WRD hydrologists engaged in
rainfall-runoff modeling and/or flood-peak-frequency estimations.   We
have no additional copies, so please call the report to the attention of
the appropriate people in each district.
