The purpose was to obtain a better understanding of the temporal and spatial variability of thunderstorm rainfall and to develop a digital model for the stochastic simulation of thunderstorm rainfall for the Southeast Coastal Plain areas. Rainfall patterns were thoroughly analyzed from rainfall data made available by the Agricultural Research Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture. Statistical properties and frequency distritutions of rainfall cell characteristics, such as cell duration, size, spatial and temporal distribution of rainfall intensity, cell movement, and the number and orientation of cells, were analyzed. A digital model of thunderstorm rainfall was formulated from observed storm cell characteristics and the parameters of the model were evaluated from isolated thunderstorms. (Author)
