Abstract: In this study, Flood Frequency Analysis at Greater-Zab was carried out using different distribution models such as Log-Normal type 3(LN3), Log-Pearson type 3(LP3) and Generalize Extreme value(GEV). The annual peak flow series of Zab River was used for this purpose. Using Kolmogorov and Anderson Darling tests, the fitness of the models was evaluated. Log-Normal Type 3 was found as the best model for estimation of floods (magnitude and return period for Greater-Zab River.
