Floods can be characterised by peak flow, flood volume with a defined duration, or other attributes. They are considered as independent and identically distributed. Empirical flood frequency provides the basis for analytical flood frequency estimation. Computer software helps to speed up the frequency analysis process.

Keywords: flood data, empirical flood frequency, return period, analytical frequency
