D. Koutsoyiannis, and N. Mamassis, The scaling model of storm hyetograph versus typical stochastic rainfall event models, 24th General Assembly of the European Geophysical Society, Geophysical Research Abstracts, Vol. 1, The Hague, 769, doi:10.13140/RG.2.1.1192.2165, European Geophysical Society, 1999.
The scaling model of storm hyetograph (D. Koutsoyiannis and E. Foufoula-Georgiou, A scaling model of storm hyetograph, Water Resources Research, 29(7), 2345-2361, 1993) is fitted to short time scale point rainfall data of several regions. In addition, other typical descriptions of rainfall events with different stochastic structures are examined using the same data sets. The comparison provides evidence that the scaling model fits well to several rainfall data sets of regions with different climates and different population of storms (e.g. intense rainfall events only) and is superior to typical stochastic rainfall event models in capturing rainfall statistical properties even if they are not explicitly used for the model fitting.
