The PMP values are valid for June 15 through Septem which is the time of the year when the most intense rainfall could occur.

Estimates at upper bounds are not checked against probable maximum precipitation (PMP) estimates and may be higher than currently valid PMP values. Please refer to NOAA Atlas 14 document for more information. Probable maximum precipitation and snowmelt criteria for southeast Alaska.

can be produced for any catchment in Australia. There are 3 Generalised Methods used to estimate PMP, appropriate for different locations and durations: Generalised Short-Duration Method (GSDM) - for durations up to 6 hours and areas up to km 2.

Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) and the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) are criteria commonly used in their design and safety analyses. The PMF is estimated to be the largest probable flood generated by a combination of hydrological and meteorological conditions which may include one of the most severe precipitation events possible at theFile Size: 1MB.

For the purpose of providing information to hydrologists for designing costly and large hydraulic structures, estimates of probable maximum precipitation (PMP) for a 2-day duration for stations in the Indian Peninsula lying between 8° N to 20° N were calculated using the Hershfield statistical techniqe.

Maximum annual 2-day rainfall data of 80 years from for Cited by: The southeast region of Alaska is primarily an archipelago. It tends to be a graveyard for North Pacific storms, and has the highest precipitation in Alaska.

At low elevations winter precipitation may fall as rain or snow; and the lowlands are covered with temperate rain forest. Higher elevations nourish glaciers reaching tidewater.

[1] Probable maximum precipitation (PMP) is the greatest accumulation of precipitation for a given duration meteorologically possible for an area. Climate change effects on PMP are analyzed, in particular, maximization of moisture and persistent upward motion, using both climate model simulations and conceptual models of relevant meteorological.

Fig. 1 illustrates the method developed in the present study to calculate PMPs. It is an adaptation of the WMO’s () conventional method, as proposed by HQ and SNC,Chow and Jones,CEHQ and SNC-Lavalin,and refined by Beauchamp et al.

North American Weather Consultants has conducted detailed regional and site-specific Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) for watersheds in the U.S. upper Midwest (Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio), the Southeast (North and South Carolina) and in the West (Colorado and New Mexico).

Of particular note, regional precipitation-frequency analyses were completed in for Washington State (Schaefer20, 21) using more than precipitation gages and high- resolution spatial mapping techniques within a GIS framework.

2 as amended, or the Director's Finding. A simple alternative formulation of Hershfield's statistical method for estimating probable maximum precipitation (PMP) is proposed. Specifically, it is shown that the published Hershfield data do not support the hypothesis that there exists a PMP as a physical upper limit, and therefore a purely probabilistic treatment of the data is more consistent.
