Frequency analysis is a set of mathematical and statistical techniques used to describe the probability of occurrence of events. This book describes some of the methods currently used to apply frequency analysis techniques to hydrological data in order to provide planners and engineers with figures that they can use in practice to reduce the losses caused by flood and drought.

While warning if impending high water is the most obvious form of forecast, the use of frequency and risk analyses at the planning stage can aid in the efficient and safe design and location of all the various structures and institutions making up .
