The primary goal of this investigation was to test hydrometeorological data for suitable probability distributions. The interrelationships between various types of data were investigated also. In particular, we were concerned with the reliability of records which were collected over variable periods and the ability of selected distributions to synthesize hydrometeorological data. Statistical tests were employed to determine the suitability of the tested data for use in a model which employs the Markov process. (Author)
