Behaviour of spatial rainfall correlation For short distances
Keywords:Spatial rainfall correlation, .8 and bounded distribution., Network design
The correlation between two series of rainfall recorded at two stations which are at short distance, is usually found significant. This information has important applicability in the areas of data interpolation, network design, transfer of information in respect of missing data and deriving areal rainfall from point values. In this paper 70-year (1901-1970) annual rainfall data for about 1500 stations in India have been analysed. The distribution of correlation coefficient (r) for the stations located within a distance of 40 km were obtained. Attempt has been made to derive theoretical model of r. For this purpose two distributions, (1) a two parameter -distribution and (2) a two parameter bounded distribution, have been chosen as in both cases the variable ranges from 0 to 1.
