The objective of the studies reported on herein was the investigation
of methods and mathematical simulation models associated with flood forecasting
with particular reference to snowmelt floods in the Upper Midwest.
It involved (1) procurement of data on streamflow, precipitation, air temperature,
dewpoint, solar radiation, wind, and water content of snow on tape
for use as input to computer programs; (2) procurement and use of some
existing mathematical models of possible use in flood forecast studies;
(3) operation of the models for some of the most severe floods of record;
(4) modification of some features of the models; and (5) evaluation of
some of the problems associated with flood forecasting in the Upper Midwest.
