  • Introduction Free Powerpoint TemplatesBackground•Regional method is for ungauged catchment floodestimation•Frequency analysis is estimation of how often aspecified event will occur•Extreme environmental event such as floods, havesevere consequences for society Page 5
  • Introduction Free Powerpoint TemplatesBackground (Cont.)•Couple of advance statistical techniques weredeveloped since the last two decades after thepublication of ARR1987, –L-moments were introduced in 1990’s.•The aim of this study is to review the ARR1987Index-flood Method of Pilbara utilizing:- –advance statistical techniques, and –flow measurement records up to 2012 Page 6

  • Introduction Free Powerpoint TemplatesRegions defined in ARR198725 years out of date now Pilbara Region Gascoyne Region (firm recommendations of design discharges were not made in ARR1987)Pilbara Region + Gascoyne Region= Drainage Division 7 Page 8
  • Introduction Free Powerpoint TemplatesPilbara Index-flood Method (ARR1987)•was developed utilizing 13 stream gaugingstations in Pilbara Region•Methodology – Annual Exceedance Series – Log-Normal distribution (assumed the generalised skew coefficient was zero) – Method of Product-Moments – All 13 catchments to form one Pilbara region Page 9

  • Introduction Free Powerpoint TemplatesL-Moments (Hosking & Wallis, 1997)• Sample moment statistics especially skewness and Kurtosis not reliable (biased) as algebraically bounded.• “L-moments” are linear combinations of order statistics – less subject to bias. Page 12

  • Introduction Free Powerpoint TemplatesProject 5 Stage 2 Report June 2012,General:• RFFA methods preferred to PRM• QRT and PRT perform similarly• PRT preferred due to smoothness• ROI outperforms fixed regions• RFFA requires only area and design rainfall intensity data (easy and simple)• Arid and semi-arid regions have insufficient data for RFFA; recommends simplified RFFA (4 regions)• Trends will be analyzed in Stage III (expected to be adjustment of ARI’s Page 15

  • Methodology and Results Free Powerpoint TemplatesMethodology - For Extreme Discharges1)Extract the AM series of stations in study area from flowmeasurement data of DoW – The quality of the measurement records were reviewed, poor quality records were discarded – The data in AM series was reviewed to ensure no two sequent data is due to same storm event – Only the stations with AM series containing at least 10 years of data are selected in this study (60 out of 90 stream gauging stations were selected in this study) Page 36
  • Methodology and Results Free Powerpoint TemplatesMethodology - For Extreme Discharges (Cont.)2)Divided 3 hydrological regions according tocatchment areas, the 3 regions are (after Hosking and Wallis(1997)):- –Small Area Region (19 gauging stations) – “S”: • catchment area ≤ 1,000 km2 –Medium Area Region (25 gauging stations) – “M”: • 1,000 km2 < catchment area ≤ 10,000 km2 –Large Area Region (16 gauging stations) – “L”: • catchment area > 10,000 km2 Page 37
  • Methodology and Results Free Powerpoint TemplatesHosking and Wallis (1997), page 180“Nonetheless, we emphatically reject the possibility ofperforming regional frequency analysis with the entireset of sites being treated as a single region. The mainreason is that the theory and practice of hydrologyimply that the frequency distribution is likely to dependon the drainage area of the basin. Regional frequencyanalysis should therefore be applied only to regionswhose basins cover a fairly small range of drainagearea.” Page 38
  • Methodology and Results Free Powerpoint TemplatesHosking and Wallis (1997), page 180“A further point is that in regional frequency analysisthere is little to be gained by using regions containingmore than about 20 sites. A reasonable starting pointfor regional frequency analysis would therefore be asubdivision of the set of sites, according to theirdrainage areas, into groups of not much more than 20.” Page 39
  • Methodology and Results Free Powerpoint TemplatesMethodology - For Extreme Discharges (Cont.)3)Sub-divide regions “S”, “M”, and “L” according to their statisticalhomogeneity, – Gauging stations with H-statistic < 2.0 were considered that they could belong to same sub-region – The number of stations in each sub-regions should not be much more than 20 – discordance test based on L-moment ratios was performed to ensure no existence of discordancy dataset in sub-regions (sub-regions S1 to S3; M1 to M3; L1 to L3; were formed) Page 40
  • Methodology and Results Free Powerpoint TemplatesMethodology - For Extreme Discharges (Cont.)4)Best-fitted frequency distribution for each sub-regions – The best-fitted frequency distribution was considered to be the one with the smallest absolute value of Z-statistic – Candidate frequency distributions are:- • Generalized Logistic, • Generalized Extreme Value, • Generalized Normal, • Pearson Type III, and • Generalized Pareto Page 41

  • Conclusions Free Powerpoint TemplatesConclusions•Design discharges from JDA 2012 can beapplied to whole Drainage Division 7 – ARR1987 and Flavell 2012 cannot generate satisfactory design discharges in Gascoyne Region – Doubt about equations from ARR P5 S2 can be applied in river basin 702, 703, 705, and 710 • No stations were selected at those river basins in the equations development Page 61
  • Conclusions Free Powerpoint TemplatesConclusions (Cont.)•Design discharges from JDA 2012 canbe applied to a wide range ofcatchment area – ARR P5 S2 cannot generate satisfactory design discharges in large catchment area • Stations with maximum catchment area of 1,000 km2 were selected • The catchment areas in Pilbara are large in particular in downstream areas, say as large as 80,000 km2 Page 62
  • Conclusions Free Powerpoint TemplatesConclusions (Cont.)•The design equations of JDA 2012 is simple andeasy to apply, – only catchment area and design rainfall intensity are required in the design discharge equations – The parameters are easy to obtain Page 63
