This figure appears in chapter 10 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.
The figure shows the percent of land area in the contiguous 48 states experiencing extreme one-day precipitation events between 1910 and 2017. These extreme events pose erosion and water quality risks that have increased in recent decades. The bars represent individual years, and the orange line is a nine-year weighted average.
