The modeling of extreme rainfall events is a fundamental part of flood hazard estimation. Establishing a probability distribution to represent the precipitation depth at various durations has long been a topic of interest in hydrology, meteorology and others. The daily rainfall data of 110 years (1900-2009) have been collected from the Meteorology station, Colombo, Sri Lanka. The data were then analyzed to identify the maximum rainfall received on any one day (24 hours duration), in during any… Expand
