storm transposition

storm transposition

[′stȯrm ‚tranz·pə′zish·ən]
(meteorology)
The transfer of precipitation patterns or DDA (depth-duration-area) values from the areas where they actually occurred to areas where they could occur; if necessary, the precipitation values are modified to account for differences in elevation or intervening barriers, and restrictions on change in shape or orientation of the storm may be imposed.
