Topographic relationships for design rainfalls over Australia

Johnson, Fiona; Hutchinson, Michael; The, Cynthia; Beesley, C; Green, J

Description

Design rainfall statistics are the primary inputs used to assess flood risk across river catchments. These statistics normally take the form of Intensity–Duration–Frequency (IDF) curves that are derived from extreme value probability distributions fitted to observed daily, and sub daily, rainfall data. The design rainfall relationships are often required for catchments where there are limited rainfall records, particularly catchments in remote areas with high topographic relief and hence some...[Show more]
