The Gumbel, 3-parameter lognormal, Pearson type 3, log-Pearson type 3, and Boughton distributions as well as power transformation were evaluated and compared using 55 flood data sets from various sizes of drainage basins representing various parts of the U.S.A. No distribution was found to fit all flood data sets accurately. Based on empirical criteria, the log-Pearson type 3 distribution emerged as the best distribution.
