Previous studies have identified rainfall intensity as a contributing factor to the amount of suspended particles washed from urban areas during storms. Moreover, it has been postulated that the square of rainfall intensity (I 2) provides a measure of the rainfall kinetic energy (KE) available for washoff processes. This paper provides a theoretical analysis of the potential inter-relationships between I 2 and rainfall KE. A hypothetical raindrop size distribution (DSD) was used to derive… CONTINUE READING
