      The engineering and water infrastructure community can use numerical models to physically estimate probable maximum precipitation after properly considering the existing major controls on extreme storms (i.e., RH and wind). This will help to provide more solid model-based PMP by: 1. Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) is termed as “theoretically the greatest depth of precipitation for a given duration that is physically possible over a given size storm area at a particular geographic location at a given time of the year” (U.S National Weather Service, ).

    Application of probable maximum precipitation estimates: United States east of the th meridianCited by: In present study, different statistically approaches were used to estimate probable maximum precipitation for one day interval by using Hershfield, Gumble theory of extreme value and Log Pearson Type -III for high altitudes areas of Pakistan. Depending on the type, scope and location of the project, availability of data, stage of the study and other considerations, the probable maximum precipitation (PMP) used in the probable maximum flood (PMF) analysis may be a generalized estimate taken from publications such as: Hydrometeorological Reports 49 (9) and 51 (10) published by the U.S. National Weather Service.

    PROBABLE MAXIMUM PRECIPITATION (PMP) • PMP is used in the design of major hydraulic structures such as spillways in large dams • There appears to be a physical upper limit to the amount of precipitation that can occur over a given area in a given time . The precipitation frequency estimates were derived from annual maximum series at each station in the region (as described in documentation). Results are provided for min, hr, 2-day, and day durations and for annual exceedance probabilities of 1/2 (or 1-in-2), 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, and 1/ Keywords: Probable Maximum Precipitation, Bakun Dam, PMP, Statistical Method, Frequency Factor. I. INTRODUCTION OR precipitation, there is a physical upper limit to the amount of precipitation which can fall over a specified area in a given time and known as the Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP).File Size: KB.
