Abstract:

A method is developed for estimating extreme rainfall rates from readily available climatology in the form of the precipitation index, the total annual rainfall divided by the number of days with rain. The method is expressed as an equation that estimates the rain that will fall during any selected time interval duration of rainfall with any desired frequency of occurrence return period. The technique as presented is applicable to the geographic regions of intense precipitation such as the moist tropics and subtropics.
