The term "year flood" is used to describe the recurrence interval of floods. The year recurrence interval means that a flood of that magnitude has a one percent chance of occurring in any given year. In other words, the chances that a river will flow as high as the year flood stage this year is 1 in Statistically, each year begins with the same 1-percent. Floods of June in Arkansas River basin, Colorado, Kansas, and New Mexico. Maximum discharges during the floods of June in the Arkansas River basin in Colorado, Kansas, and New Mexico were greater than those previously known at 49 of the locations where flood information was obtained. A higher frequency of floods was observed during the Little Ice Age (LIA; AD) and the Dark Ages Cold Period (DACP; AD) as compared to the Medieval Warm Period (MWP; AD). stations (the highest peak discharge occurring each year) to determine the magnitude and frequency of floods at individual gaging stations. The second step is the development of methods fo r transferring flood frequency data at gaging stations so that flood characteristics may be estimated for ungaged sites.
