This course is designed for participants to become knowledgeable in the application of statistical methods used in the analysis of flood damage reduction, environmental, and water supply systems. Methods include advanced theory of frequency analysis, distribution fitting and testing, monte carlo simulation, stochastic streamflow generation, univariate and multivariate regression analysis, and regional analysis.

Topics covered include (a) distribution fitting and testing; (b) mixed population frequency analysis; (c) regulated flood frequency analysis; (d) regional frequency analysis; (e) monte carlo simulation for risk analysis (f) application of univariate and multivariate regression methods for regional analysis; and (g) time-series analysis and stochastic streamflow generation.

Nominees must be assigned (a) Occupational Series: Selected 0800, 1300, and 1500; (b) Grade: GS-09 or above. Students must have had a college-level probability and statistics course to fully succeed.
