Regionalization of Extreme Precipitation Estimates for the Alabama Rainfall Analysis

Additional research opportunities have permitted me to investigate weighted averaging of regional precipitation parameters for the development of intensity-duration-frequency (IDF) curves and 24-hr design storm hyetographs at undocumented and/or user-specified locations. Performed in conjunction with the Alabama Rainfall Atlas Program, an internet-based environmental data server (, we were able to implement a superior hybrid estimation method based on metrics such as gauge station proximity and historical record length.
