Flood-Inundation Areas in Grapevine Canyon Near Scotty's Castle, Death Valley National Park, California

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This polygon shapefile represents estimated flood-inundation areas in Grapevine Canyon near Scotty's Castle, Death Valley National Park. Estimates of the 4, 2, 1, 0.5, and 0.2 percent annual exceedance probability (AEP) flood streamflows (previously known as the 25, 50, 100, 250, and 500-year floods) were computed from regional flood regression equations. The estimated flood streamflows were used with one-dimensional hydraulic models to compute water surface elevations that were mapped on a digital terrain model of the study area. Those locations where the water surface was higher than the land surface were defined as inundated. The inundation polygons are named by AEP flow (4, 2, 1, 0.5, 0.2-percent) and geometry (High, Final, and Low), and also include manually-delineated polygons where flow is inferred.
