Two-dimensional areal processes are commonly evaluated in hydrology through a discretization in space over the region in which the process is being studied. Such a discretization involves an error in going from the continuous process to the discrete one. This error is studied theoretically, and graphs are presented for its evaluation as function of the size of the area, the functional form of the correlation equation in space, and the level of discretization or size of the sample.
