Satellite-based measurements can help, and we've done the hard work to analyze it for you.
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.
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.
