The Santa Tecla flash flood, a very heavy event occurred in western Catalonia (NE Spain) in 1874, was reconstructed with hydraulic and hydrological modelling tools in three basins. The hydrograph obtained in a first step and the basin soil moisture information ultimately allowed the estimation of the range of the rainstorm magnitude which caused the flash flood. The reconstruction of historical floods has proved useful to improve the flood probability analysis, especially in ungauged basins.

Improvement of flood frequency analysis with historical information in different types of catchments and data series within the Ebro River basin (NE Iberian Peninsula) Ruiz Bellet, Josep Lluís; Balasch Solanes, J. Carles (Josep Carles); Tuset Mestre, Jordi; Monserrate, Adrián; Sánchez, Alberto (Gebrüder Borntraeger Verlagsbuchhandlung, 2015-10-29)The use of historical information is acknowledged to improve frequency analysis. However, it is not well known if the degree of this improvement depends on the characteristics of both the catch-ment and the data series. ...
