      is in a low-lying, severely flood prone area (wetlands). Most of the communities targeted in the area are located along the Ngwezi River which flows into the Zambezi River. The population along the river has grown over the years. More than 8, people live in this area. Almost three. In response to these floods the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the U.S. Agency for International Development, Regional Center for Southern Africa (USAID/RCSA) developed a plan to improve flood preparedness, warning, and response in the Limpopo River basin in Botswana.

      The Indus River basin in Pakistan was selected as the prime research focus area. The Indus River is a major river which flows through the full length (its length is about km, and its area is 1 km2) of Pakistan. It is located at latitude 23°45′N to 36°50′N and longitude 60°55′E to 75°30′ Size: 2MB. Although analysis is ongoing, several preliminary observations may now be made. Despite its very low gradient, the Red River is very active geomorphically. Significant sedimentation occurs along the river banks in the form of a drape of silt and clay, locally up to cm in thickness. The banks along both straight and curved channel reaches.

A river flood occurs when high water rises above a river's banks and overspills them. Such floods are natural and often yearly events in many river systems and help sculpt the landscape and ecosystems of river basins. They also can cause extensive damage to human development and loss of life.

However, floods in dam reservoirs flow down transforming a water-level and discharge due to three dimensional reservoir flows. But, the present reservoir management conducted by assuming the horizontal rise of water levels has not considered flood propagation mechanism and flow dynamics of flood water in reservoirs.

Figure 1. Niger River Basin: Source areas of floods in the Guinean, Sahelian and Benue regions, with location and number of catastrophic floods plotted for river and areal floods [29 31].

Discharge gauging stations used for analysis are marked in green and reservoirs as red ovals [32]. Niger River BasinCited by: 3 The function F(q) is the cumulative distribution that is tested in the Q-Q plot; the Q-Q plot is named according to this distribution (exponential Q-Q plot, Pareto Q-Q plot, etc.).

In some Q-Q plots, logarithmically transformed quantile values are plotted on one or two of the axes. Regional flood frequency analysis has long been recognized as useful in providing statistical relationships for the transfer of flood frequency information from one river basin to another within the same homogeneous region, in order to augment data and improve estimates of annual flood magnitudes in the latter basin.

Thus flood estimates may range from flows of low return periods to much rarer events or even to the likely maximum flood. It may be necessary for some purposes to express the flood in terms of river level instead of flow.

These floods are generally expected and welcomed in many parts of the world, since they enrich the soil and provide both water and livelihoods. Usually a flood is an overflow of water that submerges land, low-lying villages and towns or an unusual condition affected by inflow of the tide.

Flooding may occur as an overflow of water. Floods occur when water overflows and unintentionally escapes places such as lakes and dams. They flow into areas where flood waters are unnecessary, destroying infrastructure and in severe cases, ending lives.

Flash floods are floods that rapidly submerge low-lying areas in under 6 hours. They are caused by heavy thunderstorm(s) and dam failures.The following method of distributing the Autodesk® River and Flood Analysis Module applies only to administrative images created with the Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D Network Installation wizard.
