"Flood generation in the Burdekin and Haughton Rivers is discussed in relation to geology, geomorphology, soils and land use, and their interaction with the landscape and weather systems. Major floods generated above the Burdekin Falls Dam are usually partial area floods from low gradient streams draining low relief catchments and so have broad hydrographs. The highest flows in the lower Burdekin are generated by floods from either the rapidly responding Bowen-Broken-Bogie systems below the Dam, or the upper Burdekin above the Dam." -- Abstract
