About this metric


The amount of precipitation depends on the user selected precipitation event and climate scenario. Precipitation is assumed to fall evenly across the area of interest at a continuous rate for the duration of the event.

Rainfall = precipitation intensity * precipitation duration

Used to calculate: water held on plants, evapotranspiration, impervious runoff from hardtops and pervious runoff from soil

Depends upon:

—Parameters: precipitation duration and precipitation intensity
