In developing countries, data is usually a scarce resource as data collection is an expensive exercise. Therefore, analytical method is required to simulate the actual situations and provide synthetic data for forecasting purposes. This paper will compare several methods of synthetically generating rainfall data based on available data. Several models will be used, including lag-one Markov chain model, two-step model, and transition probability model to generate stochastic daily rainfall data… Expand
Stochastic modelling of seasonal and yearly rainfalls with low-frequency variability
Stochastic rainfall models are important for many hydrological applications due to their appealing ability to simulate synthetic series that resemble the statistical characteristics of the observedExpand


Spatial interpolation of daily rainfall stochastic generation parameters over East Africa
Downscaling seasonal rainfall predictions to daily time-scale, for crop yield simulation for instance, can be performed using stochastic generators (SGs). The spatial interpolation of the SGExpand
Stochastic Model for Rainfall Occurrence Using Markov Chain Model in Kurdufan State, Sudan
This paper will attempt to demonstrate the potential benefits of using Stochastic Processes for modeling and interpreting historical rainfall records by the examination of weekly rainfall occurrenceExpand
Comparison of two daily rainfall data generation models
Abstract This paper compares two daily rainfall data generation models, namely, the Transition Probability Matrix (TPM) model with Boughton’s adjustment and a simplified Daily and Monthly MixedExpand
A Markov Chain Model of daily rainfall
The design of many water resources projects requires knowledge of possible long-term rainfall patterns. A stochastic model based on a first-order Markov chain was developed to simulate daily rainfallExpand
Markov Chain Model and Its Application to Annual Rainfall Distribution for Crop Production
A stochastic process with a first order dependence in discrete state and time is described as Markov chain. This principle was used to formulate a four state model for annual rainfall distribution inExpand
Stochastic single‐site generation of daily and monthly rainfall in the Middle East
An important limitation of commonly used single site daily rainfall models is their inability to represent monthly characteristics of observed rainfall, whereas impact studies often demand theExpand
Automatic evaluation of stochastically generated rainfall data
A research project under the Climate Variability Program to build a tool kit that will include stochastic models to generate rainfall data to enable users to automatically evaluate the generated data is embarked on. Expand
Continuous rainfall simulation: 2. A regionalized daily rainfall generation approach
[1] This paper is the second of two in the current issue that presents a framework for simulating continuous (uninterrupted) rainfall sequences at both gaged and ungaged locations. The ultimateExpand
Regionalization of the probability of wet spells and rainfall persistence in the Basque Country (Northern Spain)
The following paper deals with the modelling of a 30-year-long daily rainfall time series (1965–1994) from 39 weather stations in the Basque Country region in Northern Spain. Markov chain models areExpand
Markov Chain Approach – Dry and Wet Spell Rainfall Probabilities in Planning Rainfed Rice Based Production System
For successful agricultural management and planning of soil water conservation measures, information about occurrence of dry and wet periods along with onset and withdrawal of rainy season isExpand
