  • Multivariate models for rainfall based on Markov modulated Poisson processes

    Point process models for rainfall are constructed generally based on Poisson cluster processes. Most commonly used point process models in the literature were constructed either based on Bartlett–Lewis or Neyman–Scott cluster processes. In this paper, we utilize a class of Cox process models, termed the Markov modulated Poisson process (MMPP), to model rainfall intensity. We use ...

  • High temporal resolution rainfall rate estimation from rain gauge measurements

    Rainfall rates derived from tipping bucket rain gauges generally ignore the detailed variation at a finer temporal scale that particularly occurs in light rainfall events. This study extends the exploration of using artificial neural networks (ANNs), in comparison with the conventional linear interpolation method (LIM) and the cubic spline algorithm (CSA) for rainfall rate estimation at fine ...

  • When it pours

    A couple of weeks ago, I journeyed to Zion National Park for some hiking and canyoneering with some family. As luck would have it, the heavy rains that week spoiled our plans, at least that is the way it seemed. We had planned a hike in one of the canyons on the first day, but even minimal rain can inundate the canyons making it a deadly ...

  • Grille Monitoring in Scottish Borders

    Hydro-Logic was appointed to supply 4 trash screen monitors to the Scottish Borders Council. They were installed to monitor the level upstream of the screens and to provide alarms when the level reached a set threshold. This alarm was to be used by the council to indicate a build up of debris in front of the screen that would have created a flood risk potential. The alarms are transmitted along ...

  • Northamptonshire County Council - Storm Case Study

    The Issue It is a common perception amongst homeowners living away from rivers or coastal areas or when there are periods of drought and water shortages that the risk of flooding is not possible. However, the hottest and driest weather conditions are often preceded by thunderstorms or flash flooding. In urban areas, heavy rainfall over dry land with poor absorption increases run-off, ...

  • On the Ground with Diesel Corrosion - Case Study

    When the EPA revealed the results of its study in July on the increasing presence of substantial corrosion in diesel fuel tanks, it proved that the problem is much larger than anyone anticipated. The facts are staggering: 83%of the diesel tank systems exhibited moderate-to-severe corrosion. 75%of the owner/operators of those diesel tanks had no idea it was ...

  • Have you cleaned your rain gauge

    We make most of our instruments at Dyacon but we do not make the rain gauge that we sell with Dyacon weather stations. We tested and evaluated a number of different rain gauges before selecting the Hyrdological Services (now Hyquest) rain gauges. You can see a wonderfully entertaining video here. One of the critical, yet often overlooked, features ...
