Abstract:

Clock two-hourly precipitation rate distributions can be derived from distributions of clock-hourly precipitation rate distribution by using negative exponential functions. The analytical conversions are provided for 16 climatic regimes in the continental United States and Alaska. The clock-hourly and two-hourly precipitation rate distributions are also compared with instantaneous distributions measured over horizontal paths. Author
