2.1 Introduction The term precipitation denotes all forms of water that reach the earth from the atmosphere. (rainfall, snowfall, hail, frost, dew,…) Variation floods and droughts For precipitation to form 1. the atmosphere must have moisture 2. there must be sufficient nuclei present to aid condensation 3. weather conditions must be good for condensation of water vapour 4. the products of condensation must reach the earth

**2.2 Forms of precipitation**

Rain Snow Drizzle Glaze Sleet Hail

**2.3 Weather systems for precipitation**

Front: a front is the interface between two distinct air masses. Cyclone(氣旋): a cyclone is a large low pressure region with circular wind motion 1. Tropical cyclone (hurricane, typhoon) 2. Extratropical cyclone Anticyclone(反氣旋): high pressure Convective precipitation(對流雨): usually, the areal extent of such rains is small, being limited to a diameter of about 10 km. Orographic precipitation(地形雨):

**2.5 Measurement of precipitation**

Raingauge: 1. nonrecording 2. recording For sitting a raingauge the following considerations are important: 1. The ground must be level and in the open and the instrument must present a horizontal catch surface 2. The gauge must be set as near the ground to reduce wind effects but it must be sufficiently high to prevent splashing, flooding, etc. 3. The instrument must be surrounded by an open fenced area of at least 5.5m * 5.5m

10
**2.6 Raingauge network An optimum density of gauges (Storm--Catchments)**

Optimum number of stations: Coefficient of variation of the rainfall values at the existing m stations Allowable degree of error in the estimate of the mean rainfall Optimum number of stations

11
2.6 Raingauge network If there are m stations in the catchment each recording rainfall values P1,P2,…Pm in a known time, the coefficient of variation Cv is calculated as: Coefficient of variation Standard deviation Mean precipitation

2.7 Preparation of data The normal rainfall is the average value of rainfall at a particular date, month ot year over a specified 30-year period. Estimation of missing data within 10% Pj: annual precipitations Nj: normal annual precipitations Normal ratio method

**2.10 Depth-area-duration relationships**

Depth-area relation Highest amount of rainfall in cm at the storm center K and n are constants in a given region Average depth in cm over an area A km2

37
**2.11 Frequency of point rainfall**

The probability of occurrence of an event of a random variable (rainfall) whose magnitude is equal to or in excess of a specified magnitude X is denoted by P. The recurrence interval (also known as return period) is defined as T=1/P This represents the average interval between the occurrence of a rainfall of magnitude equal to or greater than X.

38
**2.11 Frequency of point rainfall**

If the probability of an event occurring is P, the probability of the event not occurring in a given year is q=(1-P). The binomial distribution can be used to find the probability of occurrence of the event r times in n successive years. Thus
