Modelling Extremal Rainfall Sequences in Zambia, by T.C. Sharma, Zambia Journal of Science & Technology, Vol.8, no.1, September 1989, Pg.1-9

ABSTRACT

The annual maximum daily rainfall sequences and rainfall intensities ranging from 5 min to 24 hours duration were subjected to statistical analyses. The annual maximum daily rainfall sequences can be modelled satisfactorily magnitude versus return period relationships. The annual maximum rainfall intensities for varying durations were found to fit satisfactorily into EV1 distribution. The rainfall intensity - duration - return period interactions fitted a power law relationship.
