The problem of flood frequency estimation in ungauged catchments is approached by using statistical procedures jointly with derived distribution techniques. The application of this methodology to a large region in Northern Italy is presented. It is shown that the conjunctive use of statistical and deterministic concepts can improve the reliability of flood predictions.
