Introduction -- Estimates for mid-latitude non-orographic regions -- Estimates for mid-latitude orographic regions -- Statistical estimates -- Generalized estimates -- Estimates for tropical regions -- Estimation of PMP using the watershed-based approach and its application in China.
The manual describes procedure for estimating the maximum probable precipitation and the maximum probable flood. This is the third revised version. The first and second editions of this manual were published in 1973 and 1986, respectively. The current edition keeps a majority of the content from the second edition. Newly added content in this third edition primarily results from experiences, since 1986, in directly estimating PMP for the requirements of a given project in a design watershed on probable maximum flood (PMF) in China, the United States of America, Australia and India.--Publisher's description.
