SummaryIn a previous study the authors have estimated the probable maximum precipitation (PMP) for a 2-day duration using Hershfield's formulaXPMP =Xn +kmσn for stations in the southern Indian region. In this paper, the study is extended to estimate the PMP for stations in the north Indian region, north of 20°N. Maximum annual 2-day rainfall data for an 80-year period, from 1901, were obtained for 286 stations in the region. A mathematical relationship between the frequency factor (km) and the… CONTINUE READING
