Need data for flood modeling or infrastructure design?

We can give you average recurrence interval (ARI) or annual exceedance probability (AEP) data for sub-daily to multi-week durations (1 hour to 18 weeks). Known around the world by various names such as design rainfall, precipitation frequency, intensity-duration-frequency or depth-duration-frequency.

Have rain gauge data but not in the right place or at the right duration?

Use your local data to scale and calibrate satellite-based estimates at your location of interest. In fact, we recommend this, because rain gauges measure rainfall directly and are generally more accurate than remote (satellite) measurements.
