Abstract:
Torrential rainfall from hurricanes Dennis and Floyd produced the great flood of 1999 for North Carolina. Many accounts touted the event as \"the flood of the century\" and reported the probability of experiencing such an event as one in 400 or 500 years. Although the magnitude of the flood is unquestionable, to assign such a definition to the flood provides an opportunity to reexamine flood frequency analysis and the accuracy of recurrence interval estimates.

Abstract:
Eroding soil from eastern North Carolina into the coastal plain has been a major focus of recent geographical studies. This case study looks at drainage ditch excavations in Pitt County over a one year period. Analysis of soil accumulation in these ditches reveals the type of soil erosion from eastern North Carolina's agricultural lands and the extent to which these soils travel towards the coastal regions.
