Long-term Simulations:Rainfall data

Jump to: navigation, search

The Rainfall data file for long-term simulations is comprised of a series of single storm events, as described in Chapter 9. An example of a two-storm long-term rainfall file is shown below. The GSSHA User’s Manual (Downer and Ogden in preparation) should be consulted for additional information on constructing rainfall files.

As shown in this example, it is possible to change the location and number of gages among storm events, as well as the type of rainfall. However, rainfall types cannot be mixed within a rainfall event.
