SPACE VARIATIONS OF PRECIPITATION AND IMPLICATIONS FOR RAINGAGE NETWORK DESIGN

SPACE VARIATIONS OF DAILY PRECIPITATION ARE EXAMINED IN TERMS OF THE FIELD OF INTER-STATION CORRELATIONS OVER THE SLEEPERS RIVER WATERSHED IN NORTHERN VERMONT. THE CORRELATION FIELD ABOUT A CONTROL GAGE IS DEPENDENT ON INTER-STATION DISTANCE AND AZIMUTH, DAILY RAINFALL AMOUNT, AND THE SEASON OF THE YEAR. NO DEPENDENCE ON ELEVATION OR ELEVATION DIFFERENCE (SLOPE) WAS FOUND. A CORRELATION FIELD FUNCTION IS DERIVED WHICH IS THEN USED TO DETERMINE RAINGAGE DENSITY AND CONFIGURATION REQUIRED FOR SPECIFIED ACCURACY OF WATERSHED PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES. /AUTHOR/
