Abstract:

A methodology is described which provides climatological estimates of the frequencies of instantaneous rainfall rates at a point and along a surface horizontal path length as a function of the clock-hour rate. Clock-hourly precipitation amounts are utilized since they are available for a period of record for many first-order stations in the CONUS and for a selected number of overseas locations. Point instantaneous rainfall rates measured at Island Beach, New Jersey Franklin, North Carolina and Miami, Florida provided the input to these clock-hourinstantaneous rate relationships. These relationships are intended primarily for use over the Eastern United States but may find application for other areas. Author
