A computer package for flood frequency analysis, based on the application of common use spreadsheets framework provided by Excel (Excel is a registered trademark of Microsoft Corporation, Inc.), is presented using several probability distribution functions. The computer package addresses the issues of model parameter estimation by the Methods Of Moments (MOM), Maximum Likelihood (ML) and, for those with invertible probability distribution functions, the Probability Weighted Moments (PWM), too. The computer model uses two measures of goodness of fit tests. When the ML method is applied, the value of a third is provided.
