Abstract

The distribution of envelope-areal rain-depths for 1-day durations is attempted for 241 severe rainstorms which occurred over the Indian region during 1880-1997. From Depth-Area-Duration (DAD) raindepth data of these severe storms, envelope rain-depths for standard areas of 100, 500, 1000, 5000 and 10,000 sq.km. were picked out. These raindepths for different standard areas were then allotted to 25 four degree latitude-longitude grid-squares into which the contiguous India area (excepting the north-east mountainous portion of the country) has been divided. Apart from a few grid squares along the west coast, the remaining grid squares are plain homogeneous areas allowing design storms for small basins within these grid squares to be estimated using the grid-square data for different standard areas.
