The Forest Service Peak Flow Calculator predicts peak flood flow rate for a given storm from a small watershed. The model uses Curve Number technology given precipitation and runoff, as from ERMiT, plus other parameters.
The Forest Service Peak Flow Calculator estimates peak flow for burned areas using Curve Number technology.
Estimated peak flow rate (m3/s)
USDA Forest Service, Moscow Forestry Sciences Laboratory is not responsible for results of post-fire runoff estimation methods, but provides information on how to use these methods. The choice of the method is the user's, and he/she is solely responsible for the estimation results.
