Clustering techniques are used to identify groups of watersheds which have similar flood characteristics. This book, the first of its kind, is a comprehensive reference on how to use these techniques for regional flood frequency analysis. It provides a detailed account of several recently developed clustering techniques, including those based on fuzzy set theory. It also brings together formerly scattered research findings on the application of clustering techniques to RFFA.
