Abstract:

Measurements of surface rain intensity are made at a relatively few locations around the world. Techniques have been developed whereby estimates of rain intensity statistics for any location can be obtained from the available climatic data. Graphical representations of such estimates for 46 locations are shown. An estimate of the world-wide average time distribution of rain intensity is based on a weighted average of the estimates for specific locations and a knowledge of the world average annual rainfall.
