A year regional paleoflood chronology, based on flood deposits from 19 rivers in Arizona and Utah, reveals that the largest floods in the region cluster into distinct time intervals that. The amount of water corresponding to a year flood, a year flood, or a 1,year flood is known as a "flood quantile".

For instance, on a given river, the flood quantile corresponding to the year flood might be 10, cubic feet per second (cfs) and the flood quantile corresponding to the year flood might be 15, cfs.
