Talking to a hydrologist is definitely a good thing (one I know has a great Hagar cartoon with someone explaining the "benefits" of living near a river :->) but I'm not sure the "500 year flood" is the right answer... Even if it is, you need to worry about "jumps" in the time series - usually human-induced, e.g. building new dams, diversions, parking lots, suburbs, etc. Regards, -james ____________________________________________________________________________ James W.
