Assessment of Changes in Flood Frequency Due to the Effects of Climate Change: Implications for Engineering Design

The authors explore the uncertainty implied in the estimation of changes in flood frequency due to climate change at the basins of the Cedar River and Skunk River in Iowa, United States. The study focuses on the influence of climate change on the 100-year flood, used broadly as a reference flow for civil engineering design.
