Short summary
A Monte Carlo approach for deriving flood frequency curves in ungauged basins in Sicily region (Italy) is proposed. The procedure consists of: (i) a regional frequency analysis of extreme rainfall series, combined with Huff curves-based synthetic hyetographs, for design storms and (ii) a rainfall-runoff model, based on the Time-Area technique, to generate synthetic hydrographs. Validation of the procedure is carried out on four gauged river basins in Sicily (Italy) with promising results.
