There is a strong inter-annual and inter-decadal variability in time series of flood-related variables, such as intense precipitation, high river discharge, flood magnitude, and flood loss at a range of spatial scales.

Is there any observational support for this link? A series of papers on this subject.The United States contains an extraordinarily diverse landscape, with tremendous variation in physical geography, climate, and ecology, as well as parallel diversity in the political and economic landscape.

As a result, approaches to watershed management differ, too. This chapter describes regional.
