The commentaries of Jorissen and Kok, and Misiewicz are thorough. Each admits that the proposed MMFS/discharge model provides a number of advantages. Among them is the encapsulation of hydraulic equations for river discharge into a statistical model which predicts return times for extreme floods. Further, the model includes the effects of multiple tributaries to account for their joint contribution to flooding.
