Besides heavy rainfall intensity and water runoff from the catchment areas of rivers, according to the SAARC workshop, the absence of soil conservation practices, deforestation and disorganized use of land are the major reasons for floods.
The Telog RG-41 monitors the output of a tipping bucket rain gauge and reports the rainfall intensity so utilities can understand the intensity and distribution of rainfall and its potential impact on their network.
The objectives of the paper in this study area are: (i) to examine the scaling properties of extreme rainfall in the Oueme valley (Benin), (ii) to establish scaling behavior of statistical non central moment over different durations of rainfall intensity and (iii) to derive the IDF relationships for short-duration rainfall from daily data using the scaling methodology and to compare with empirical method.
