7 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 7 Previous findings Eagleson (1970) pointed out that for given climatic conditions, storm events of a given scale (microscale, mesoscale, or synoptic scale) exhibit similar time distributions when normalized with respect to total rainfall depths and storm durations. Convective cells and thunderstorms are dominant types of storms at the microscale and the mesoscale, respectively. Events of synoptic scale include frontal systems and cyclones that are typically several hundred miles in extent and often have series of mesoscale subsystems.

8 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 8 In general, convective and frontal-type storms tend to have their peak rainfall rates near the beginning of the rainfall processes, while cyclonic events have the peak rainfall somewhere in the central third of the storm duration. Koutsoyiannis and Foufoula-Georgiou (1993) proposed a simple scaling model to characterize the time distribution of instantaneous rainfall intensity and incremental rainfall depth within a storm event.

10 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 10 Simple Scaling Model for Storm Events A natural process fulfills the simple scaling property if the underlying probability distribution of some physical measurements at one scale is identical to the distribution at another scale, multiplied by a factor that is a power function of the ratio of the two scales (Gupta and Waymire, 1991).

11 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 11 Let X(t) and X( t) denote measurements at two distinct time or spatial scales t and t, respectively. We say that the process {X(t), t 0} has the simple scaling property if there is some real number H such that for every real > 0. The denotes equality in distribution, and H is called the scaling exponent.

13 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 13 Simple Scaling Model for Storm Events – Instantaneous Rainfall Let represent the instantaneous rainfall intensity at time t of a storm with duration D. The simple scaling relation for is for every.

14 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 14 In practice, cumulative rainfall depths over a fixed time interval, for example one hour, are recorded and we shall refer to them as the incremental rainfall depths. The i-th incremental rainfall depth can be expressed by

15 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 15

16 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 16 The above equations are valid even for nonstationary random processes.

17 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 17 Incremental rainfall percentage or normalized (dimensionless) rainfall rate.

18 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 18

19 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 19 The i-th incremental rainfall percentages of storms of durations D and D are identically distributed if the time intervals areand, respectively.

20 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 20 Assuming that storm events are independent, the identical distribution property allows us to combine the i-th (i = 1, 2, …, ) incremental rainfall percentages of any storm durations to form a random sample, and the parameters (e.g. mean and variance) of the underlying distribution can be easily estimated.

25 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 25 By the Markov property, the joint density of Y(1), Y(2),…, Y(n) factorizes

26 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 26 Application of the SSGM model Design storm hyetograph Because the design storm hyetograph represents the time distribution of the total storm depth determined by annual maximum rainfall data, the design storm hyetograph is optimally modeled when based on observed storm events that actually produced the annual maximum rainfall, i.e. the so-called annual maximum events.

27 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 27 Event duration the duration of an observed storm event. Design duration the designated time interval for a design storm. In general, the design durations do not coincide with the actual durations of historic storm events. The design durations are artificially designated durations used to determine the corresponding annual maximum depths; whereas event durations are actual raining periods of historic storm events.

30 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 30 Annual maximum events tend to occur in certain periods of the year (such as a few months or a season) and tend to emerge from the same storm type. Moreover, annual maximum rainfall data in Taiwan strongly indicate that a single annual maximum event often is responsible for the annual maximum rainfall depths of different design durations. In some situations, single annual maximum event even produced annual maximum rainfalls for many nearby raingauge stations.

33 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 33 Using only annual maximum events for design hyetograph development enables us not only to focus on events of the same dominant storm type, but it also has the advantage of relying on almost the same annual maximum events that are employed to construct IDF curves.

34 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 34 Because the peak rainfall depth is a key element in hydrologic design, an ideal hyetograph should not only describe the random nature of the rainfall process but also the extreme characteristics of the peak rainfall. Therefore, our objective is to find the incremental dimensionless hyetograph that not only represents the peak rainfall characteristics but also has the maximum likelihood of occurrence.

35 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 35 Our approach to achieve this objective includes two steps: Determine the peak rainfall rate of the dimensionless hyetograph and its time of occurrence, and Find the most likely realization of the normalized rainfall process with the given peak characteristics.

48 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 48 Annual maximum events that produced annual maximum rainfall depths of 6, 12, 18, 24, 48, and 72-hour design durations were collected. All event durations were first divided into twenty-four equal periods i (i=1,2,…,24, D = event duration, =D/24). Rainfalls of each annual maximum event were normalized, with respect to the total rainfall depth and event duration.

52 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 52 Normality check for normalized rainfalls The Gauss-Markov model of dimensionless hyetographs considers the normalized rainfalls {Y(i), i=1,2,…, n} as a multivariate normal distribution. Results of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test indicate that at = 0.05 significance level, the null hypothesis was not rejected for most of Y(i)s. The few rejected normalized rainfalls occur in the beginning or near the end of an event, and have less rainfall rates.

60 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 60 Translating hyetographs between storms of different durations Some hyetograph models in the literature are duration-specific (the SCS 6-hr and 24- hr duration hyetographs) and return-period- specific (the alternating block method (Chow, et al., 1988). The simple scaling property enables us to translate the dimensionless hyetographs between design storms of different durations.

61 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 61 Translating the dimensionless hyetographs between design storms of durations D and D is accomplished by changing the incremental time intervals by the duration ratio. Values of the normalized rainfalls Y(i) (i=1,2,…,n) remain unchanged.

62 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 62 For example, the incremental time intervals ( ) of the design storms of 2-hr and 24-hr durations are five (120/24) and sixty (1440/24) minutes, respectively. The changes in the incremental time intervals are important since they require the subsequent rainfall-runoff modeling to be performed based on the designated incremental time intervals.

63 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 63 A significant advantage of the simple scaling model is that developing two separate dimensionless hyetographs for design storms of 2-hr and 24-hr durations can be avoided. The incremental rainfall depths of a design storm are calculated by multiplying the y- coordinates of the dimensionless hyetograph by the total depth from IDF or DDF curves.

64 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 64 IDF Curves and the Scaling Property The event-average rainfall intensity of a design storm with duration D and return period T can be represented by From the scaling property of total rainfall

70 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 70 DDF (IDF) curves under scaling property Development of scaling, or scale-invariant, models enable us to transform data from one temporal or spatial model to another and help to overcome the problem of inadequacy of the available data. Let X(t) and X( t) be the annual maximum rainfall depths corresponding to design durations t and t, respectively. The scale-invariant property of the annual maximum depths implies

71 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 71 The above equation is referred to as the wide sense simple scaling (WSSS). The property of WSSS can be easily checked from the data since

72 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 72 Plot of log(X r (t))~log(t) has a slope of rn, if the WSSS holds for X(t).

73 Lab for Remote Sensing Hydrology and Spatial Modeling RSLAB-NTU 73 Empirical evidence indicates that temporal rainfall and its extreme events sometimes may be far from simple scaling, and can exhibit a multiple scaling behavior.
