Abstract:

Nearly instantaneous precipitation rates have been measured in several locations to develop point frequencies of occurrence of 1-minute rates. These are tabulated by months for about one year of data from locations in Florida, North Carolina, New Jersey, Alaska, and the Marshall Islands. Four- minute rain rates are tabulated for a very limited sample of data from Bogor, Indonesia. Similar data for shorter periods of time have been derived for Flagstaff, Arizona, and Fort Sherman, Canal Zone. A four-year average table of frequencies has been derived for the summer months at a location near Tombstone, Arizona. Tables of 4-minute rates are included for three locations in Vietnam. Two-minute average frequencies along lines of raingages have been tabulated for England and central Florida.
