Question

At a particular location it is estimated that an annual rainfall of 600 mm has a return period of 10

years. What is the probability

a)that annual rainfall will be at least 600 mm in at least one of the years in a particular10 yearperiod?

b)that annual rainfall will be at least 600 mm in any two years in a particular 10 yearperiod?

c)The annual rainfall will be at least 600 mm in any two consecutive years in aparticular 10 year period?

Answer #1

The mean annual rainfall in a particular region is 80
inches with a standard deviation of 8 inches. If a sample of 32
years is selected, what is the probability that the mean annual
rainfall for this sample will be less than 79 inches?

A hyetograph
is a record of daily precipitation at a location as a function
of time.
records storms of varying intensity and duration.
indicates precipitation intensity as well as precipitation
depth during a storm.
can be measured by a tipping bucket gage.
If the return period of a given annual precipitation at a given
location is 10 years, then:
the exceedance probability for that value of annual
precipitation is 0.1.
that value of annual precipitation will occur exactly one time...
