There is an increasing demand for catchment runoff estimation to cope with the natural disasters such as typhoon, extreme rainfall. However, the ungauged catchments are common case in practices. This study suggested a rationalization of conceptual rainfall-runoff model for typhoon flood events in Geum river region. And the developed models were validated based on the observed hydrological data. Therefore, developed regionalization models could estimate catchment runoff for Typhoon flood events. It will be used as basic data for the river management for extreme flood conditions.
