    In general, (1) floods with a return period of a year or longer are not affected by a 5% paving of their catchment, (2) small floods may be increased by 10 times by urbanization, (3) floods with a return period of yr may be doubled in size by a 30% paving of the basin, and (4) the effect of urbanization declines, in relative terms, as flood.   Obviously, frequency of floods and subsequent flood risk has been much higher than ever. The aim of this study is to analyze the dynamics of land use and cover changes for Foshan City, especially focusing on recent increase in flood risk as a result of joint effects of natural processes and human by:

    THE CUMULATIVE EFFECTS OF URBANIZATION ON SMALL STREAMS IN THE PUGET SOUND LOWLAND ECOREGION Christopher W. May Richard R. Horner are small streams and associated wetlands. These stream. A. Urbanization decreases rainwater infiltration into the ground and therefore increases the frequency of floods. B. Urbanization decreases rainwater infiltration into the ground and therefore increases the magnitude of floods. C. Urbanization decreases flood lag time by the network of street sewers.

    Bridge, culvert, and highway design often require knowledge of the magnitude and frequency of flood discharge from small streams where the drainage basin is urbanized. The results of a 6-year study by the U.S. Geological Survey provide methods for estimating flood magnitudes for selected frequencies on small streams draining urban areas in Tennessee. necessary to know the magnitude and frequency of discharge from small streams where the drainage basin is urbanized. In order to develop an adequate method for determining the frequency of floods on small streams in Tennessee,where urbanization is a factor, a Author: Clarence H. Robbins.

Engineers involved in bridge, culvert and highway design often find it necessary to know the magnitude and frequency of discharge from small streams where the drainage basin is urbanized. In order to develop an adequate method for determining the frequency of floods on small streams in Tennessee, where urbanization is a factor, a considerable amount of runoff data are needed.

INTRODUCTION As urban development take8 place in a previously rural basin, substantial changes in flood Characteristics of the basin often occur.

The effect of the changes, in general, is to increase the magnitude and frequency of flooding. considered in the. Previously, panel approaches have been used to estimate the effect of forest cover on flood frequency (Ferreira & Ghimire, ), deforestation on streamflow (Levy et al., ), rainfall on low streamflow (Bassiouni et al., ), and urbanization on annual runoff coefficients (Steinschneider et al., ).Author: Annalise G.

The analyses indicate that increasing impervious area can significantly increase peak flows. Examples are given for computing flood frequency for a site on an ungaged stream and for an ungaged site on a gaged stream.

The effects of urbanization on flood peaks in streams in the Austin metropolitan area were studied in two separate analyses. In the first analysis, annual peak discharge records at 13 streamflow-gaging sites were used to compute a recorded flood frequency relation for each site.
