Abstract

About one hundred severe rainstorms occurred in the Indian region during the period between 1880 and 1990. The centres of these severe rainstorms occur mostly in four preferred zones. The two major zones where the bulk of rainstorm centres are located are in north and central India. These two zones have been further sub-divided into four homogeneous subzones for the purpose of rainstorm transposition. For each of these homogeneous sub-zones and zones envelope Depth-Area-Duration (DAD) raindepths have been calculated. These are based on the DAD data of severe rainstorms that have occurred within each zone in order to obtain probable maximum precipitation (PMP) estimates.
