From point to areal rainfall: linking the different approaches for the frequency characterization of rainfalls in urban areas

M.H. Ramos, E. Leblois & J.-D. Creutin
In urban water design and management, many hydrologic problems involve the frequency characterization of rainfalls. Hydrologists are commonly asked to evaluate rainfall intensities for given recurrence frequencies or to indicate how rare an observed event is by estimating its return period. This study aims to improve the characterization of rainfall hazard over a city by linking point to areal rainfall frequency analysis. We use a stochastic rainfall field generator based on the turning-bands method to...
