Probability structure and return period calculations for multi-day monsoon rainfall events at Subang, Malaysia
Flooding is the most common natural disaster in Malaysia, as a result of heavy rainfall. Malaysia is located in the equatorial zone and experiences a tropical climate with two seasons classified as the Northeast (November to May) and Southwest (May to September) monsoons. Both monsoons bring moisture, and multi-day rainfall events that cause particularly devastating floods on large watersheds. The objectives of this study are the following: (1) examine the probability structure of multi-day rainfall events; (2) determine the most suitable distribution function to represent the multi-day rainfall ...
