Abstract

High-magnitude floods occur with greater frequency in the Balcones Escarpment area than in any other region of the United States. Rates of precipitation and discharge per unit drainage area approach world maxima. The intensity of rainstorms is compounded by rapid runoff and limited infiltration. producing episodic flooding. Effects of urbanization may be superimposed on meteorologic and physiographic factors. thereby increasing flood hazards in metropolitan areas throughout the region.
