"A previous study of mean annual floods (Harbaugh, 1962) was based on watershed area, channel length, and channel slope of forty five small watershed in the State of Missouri. The present study investigates the effect of precipitation, soil distribution, vegetal cover, and underlying bedrock on annual peak rate of discharge. This study consists of statistical analysis by multiple correlations of additional quantitative data for nine of Harbaugh's forty five watersheds. Hydrologic data were obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Weather Bureau climatological publications. Distribution of vegetation was compiled from U.S. Department of Agriculture aerial photographs. Soil and rock type data were compiled from available references, reports, and maps. Statistical analysis of data was computed on an IBM 1620 computer at the UMR Computer Center"--Abstract, page ii.
