Winter 2002-2003 Brown Bag Lunch Meeting Agenda:
January 15, 2003. The Kenai Floods - Fall, 2002. Dave Meyer, a hydrologist with the USGS, will talk about the climate conditions and subsequent flooding that occurred on the Kenai in October and November in 2002. Chris Kepler, with ADOT/PF will then talk about the type and extent of impacts on Kenai roads and bridges, as well as DOT priorities and design issues.
February 12, 2003. Estimating Flood Frequency and High/Low-Duration Flows for Alaskan Streams. Janet Curran, a hydrologist with the USGS, will present an update to the widely used peak-flow frequency publication "Magnitude and Frequency of Floods in Alaska and Conterminous Basins of Canada" and new high- and low-duration flow estimation equations. These new analyses can help estimate streamflow statistics (such as the 100-yr. Flood or 2% exceedance flow) anywhere in the State.
March 12, 2003. The Winter Snowfall in Review. (Tentative) Rick McClure, hydrologist with the NRCS will talk about the winter's snowfall and forecast for the State's river basins.
