Summary Objective:
To provide a method for generating long-term temporal and spatially-consistent, rainfall series to support a new approach to flood estimation based on continuous rainfall-runoff simulation.


Key Customer Purpose:
To offer a major development in the representation of rainfall for hydrological design, and supports a new methodology for continuous simulation modelling for flood design.
