Peak Flows at USGS Stations near Mount Rainier

Right now this page only displays the following stations/situations:
12082500 - Nisqually River near National, WA (Peaks > 2,600 cfs and/or annual peak) (WY's 1942-present)
12094000 - Carbon River near Fairfax, WA (Peaks > 1,800 cfs and/or annual peak) (WY's 1930-1978, 1991-present)
Note: A peak flow time of 12:01 indicates the high for that day, and not the exact time it occurred during that day.
Flood Recurrence Intervals are calculated only from annual peak floods for available periods.
The "Link Events" column attempts to show flood peaks on the Nisqually and Carbon within 24 hrs of each other (i.e., the same storm)

Show ALL flood peaks (including annual peak and subpeaks)

157 peak flows listed below (78 for Nisqually; 79 for Carbon)...

Flood recurrence interval calculation:

RI = a * eb * cfs

Where:
RI = Flood recurrence interval, years,
aNisqually = 0.436521199618492000,
bNisqually = 0.000240766230529842,
aCarbon = 0.394483874353413000,
bCarbon = 0.000358101532331527, and
cfs = Peak flow in cubic feet per second
