Forecasting tropical cyclone-induced rainfall in coastal Australia: implications for effective flood management

Saha, K.K.; Hasan, Md Masud; Quazi, Ali


This article is designed to predict the amount of rainfall resulting from tropical cyclones (TCs) in Australia’s coastal regions and contributes to predicting the likelihood of extreme rainfall events. For this purpose, a Poisson–Gamma generalised linear model is fitted to the TC-induced rainfall with distance of the rainfall station from the TC track and translational speed (TS) of TC as predictors. Both variables have significant negative impact on rainfall. For the lowest TC TS, the...[Show more]
