Report from S&T Project 1735: Stochastic Storm Transposition for Physically-Based Rainfall and Flood Hazard Analyses

Reclamation partnered with the University of Wisconsin-Madison to address a need for improved gridded technologies that support precipitation and flood frequency analyses. Research products developed in this study include a gridded, web-based stochastic storm transposition tool referred to as RainyDay and gridded flood-frequency estimates developed using a stochastic version of WRF-Hydro coupled to RainyDay output. These products were demonstrated within the Olympus Dam watershed in Colorado.
