Latitude and Longitude of the Catchment Area are 140 30 to 180 30 and 1010 00 to 1040
00, respectively.
Problem 2
Assuming the rain falling vertically, express the catch of a gauge inclined 15 from the vertical
as a percentage of the catch of a gauge installed vertically.
Problem 3
A 3-hour storm occurred at a place and the precipitation in the neighboring rain-gage stations P,
Q and R were measured as 3.8, 4.1 and 4.5 cm respectively. The precipitation in the neighboring
station S could not be measured since the rain gauge was damaged. The normal annual
precipitation in the four stations P, Q, R and S were 45, 48, 53 and 50 cm, respectively. Estimate
the storm precipitation at station S.
Problem 4
In a catchment one precipitation station A, was inoperative for part of a month during which
storm occurred. The respective storm totals at three surrounding stations 1, 2 and 3 are 35, 40
and 30 mm, respectively. The normal annual precipitations at A, 1, 2 & 3 are respectively 985,
1125, 940 and 1210 mm. Estimate the storm precipitation for Station A.

Problem 5
The average annual precipitation for the four sub-basins constituting a large river basin is 58, 67,
85 and 80 cm. The sub-basin areas are 900, 690, 1050 and 1650 km, respectively. What is the
average annual precipitation for the basin as a whole?
Problem 6
The annual precipitation at station A and the
15 surrounding stations are given in the Table 3.19 given below:
a. Determine the consistency of the record at station A.

Problem 7
The Table 3.20 given below gives the annual rainfall at a station A and the average annual
rainfall of 10 stations in the vicinity for a period of 17 years. It is suspected that there has been a
change in the location of the rain gauge at Station A during the period of this record. Determine
the year when this change occurred and the corrected rain gauge readings prior to this year.
