Choosing a probability distribution to represent the precipitation depth at various durations has long been a topic of interest in hydrology. Early study into the distribution of wet-day daily rainfall has identified the 2-parameter Gamma (G2) distribution as the most likely candidate distribution based on traditional goodness of fit tests. This paper uses probability plot correlation coefficient test statistics and L-moment diagrams to examine the complete series and wet-day series of daily… Expand
