The purpose of the NFF mailing list is to provide information on the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Flood Frequency (NFF) program. NFF is a computer application that is used to estimate peak discharges for unregulated streams. Values (discharges) derived by the program often serve as input for other applications (such as hydraulic computer models) that are used to technically support end-products (map revisions) of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Specific topics that will be considered in future mailings include:

  • Application of the NFF program and USGS regression equations
  • Revisions to the USGS regression equations since the NFF software was released
  • Locations from which to obtain the NFF program and USGS regression equation documentation
  • Parameters of USGS regression equations and how to obtain them
  • Examples in which USGS regression equations are used for NFIP purposes
  • Responses to any questions, problems, or comments from the mailing list subscribers
