This is a set of six ASCII grids describing the peak flood event for six return periods (2-100 years) at each point of the river network in the state of Kerala, India. Estimates were derived in a similar way to the Flood Estimation Handbook* approach. The data is measured in cubic metres per second, and is given on an unprojected resolution of 15 arc-seconds per grid cell.
